Parents & School Shared Goals

Parenting styles represent the different strategies parents use to raise their children. The basic styles of parenting are defined by the parents' levels of control over their children and responsiveness to their children. Parenting styles are not hard and fast rules.
Parenting styles vary with the parents and the children whom they raise. One style may work well with one family and its unique circumstances while that same style may prove ineffective with another family and its different makeup and circumstances.
One of the best known theories of parenting style was developed by Diana Baumrind a developmental psychologist, a leading expert in parenting. She proposed that parents fall into one of three categories
Three main categories of parenting styles :
Permissive, Authoritarian , Assertive - Democratic
Authoritarian -telling their children exactly what to do
Permissive - allowing their children to do whatever they wish
Assertive - Democratic - providing rules and guidance without being overbearing
An authoritarian parent
This style of parenting has been identified as the "drill sergeant" approach. Commanding the child what to do and what not to do, rules are clear and unbending. Misbehavior is severely punished.
Predominant for most of authoritarian parenting is effective in societies experiencing little change and accepting one way to do things.
The parent instructs the child on each act. The child learns by imitating. This style mismatches a rapidly changing society which values choice and innovation.
Children of authoritarian parents
The effects of authoritarian parenting styles have been associated with a variety of child outcomes including social skills and academic performance
* Some children display more aggressive behavior outside the home.
* Others may act fearful or overly shy around others.
* Often have lower self-esteem.
* Have difficulty in social situations.
Permissive parenting is sometimes known as indulgent parenting. This style of parenting make relatively few demands upon their children.
They take a "hands-off" approach, allowing children to learn from the consequences of their actions.
Misbehavior is usually ignored. Without clear limits, children get confused, feel insecure, and can make poor choices.
Children raised by permissive parents
The effects of permissive parenting
* Lack self-discipline
* Sometimes have poor social skills
* May be self-involved and demanding
* May feel insecure due to the lack of boundaries and guidance
An assertive-democratic parent (authoritative or interactive Parenting)
Assertive- democratic parenting is probably the most balance approach to raising children as it sits somewhere in the middle of permissive and authoritarian parenting styles.
In an ideal world, this would likely be the most favoured method of parenting. Parents who give children lots of practice in making choices and guide them to see the consequences of those choices.
Children raised by this style learn to accept responsibility make wiser choices. They can cope with change and are better equipped to succeed in work-force which relies on cooperative problem-solving.
Children raised by assertive- democratic parents
