Are you interested in parenting? f you're about to have a kid, congratulations you’re about to have an amazing experience Or maybe you already have a child and are confused about the different parenting styles, by the end of this video, I’ll define the four different parenting styles giving you humorous examples from TV and movies and explain the associated outcomes you often see from each type My name is Iftikhar and i'm the editor of seed2stemcom, a parenting blog focused on helping parents raise stem mindset kids

Let’s get started First up, a little history The science behind parenting styles was first defined back in 1967 by Diana Baumrind, a development psychologist who studied preschoolers in her landmark study, she developed the first three of four parenting styles we have today In 1983, Macoby and Martin further studied parenting and proposed some additional changes The four different types of parenting styles are: 1

Authoritarian Parents, 2 Authoritative Parents, 3 Permissive Parents and 4 Uninvolved & Neglectful Parents Movie scenes: Since we have time on our hands

But i was only trying to Silence We’re trying very hard i want t understand why it is you insist on defiling us This is for your own good boy Are you being smart with me? You have no respect for other peoples things

For authority Sir, I’m sorry You can’t just go around doing whatever you feel like

We’re not going to let you ruin your life I am withdrawing you from Walton and enrolling you in military school you're going to Harvard and you're going to be a doctor If you’re being smart with me young lady, you’re going to be punished You can’t

there are rules in life Yes Sir You need structure, you need discipline Discipline Yes sir

i think you’ve been trying to teach me Don’t give up on me dad Oh yes, and the tapestries and the draperies But I just finished Do them again You have opportunities that I never even dreamt about and I’m not going to let you I deserve to tell you what I feel Alright then, tell me what you feel And don’t forget the garden and scrub the terrace, sweep the halls and the stairs, clean the chimneys and of course, theres the mending snd the sowing in the laundry [End of movie scenes display] So, first of all, lets talk about Authoritarian Parents

As you can probably guess by observing the examples we just watched, Authoritarian Parents have very high expectations for their kids especially when it comes to discipline and obedience The key point is that Authoritarian Parents expect total obedience and don’t explain why children should follow their example Their reason is "because i said so," and often, Authoritarian Parents don’t even have to explain that at all Authoritarian Parents generally don’t resort to using rewards to motivate their kids as an excellent behavior is expected instead, Authoritarian Parents more often resort to using punishment to control children’s behavior So, how do you know if you’re an Authoritarian Parent? Do you agree with symptoms like this: when i ask my child to do something, and she asks, "why?' i respond with, "Because I said so

" Do you punish your child by holding expressions of affection? For example, you may temporarily stop talking to your child or decide to not tuck in your kid at night as punishment or do you yell and shout when your child misbehaves? If the answer to all three is yes, then you are an Authoritarian Parent If the answer to most of these questions is yes, then you’re probably leaning this way Now, the video clips I showed today were obviously a bit satirical, funny and a little scary but Authoritarian Parenting has its pros too Expectations are very high for children of Authoritarian Parents which is a good thing A 2001 study by Professor Chao linked Authoritarian Parents with higher school achievement for their kids

Children of Authoritarian Parents can often be very well behaved too Now, how do I know this? well, I’m the son of an Authoritarian Parent and I like to think so far, with God's blessings, i've had a very successful life My parents upbringing of me helped me become the man i am today So, Authoritarian Parenting can have its benefits but Authoritarian Parenting can backfire spectacularly Studies have found that Authoritarian Parenting is linked to lower school grades

in 2017, Martin Pinkart analyzed 1400 published studies and found that harsh psychological control was the biggest predictor of worsening behavioral issues over a period of time Kids from Authoritarian families can be less sociable and less resourceful they can suffer from emotional problems like low self esteem and depression So now, let’s talk about the second style of parenting, which is Authoritative Parenting i'm sure the first thing you're thinking is, "Couldn't they have come up with a different name?" Yes, Authoritative Parenting sounds very similar to Authoritarian Parenting but there is a significant difference

So, even though Authoritative Parents have high expectations for their kids, they are also highly responsive to their child's emotional needs so, what exactly does this mean? Well, Authoritative Parents tend to set clear limits on boundaries and consistently enforce They reason with their child instead of requiring total obedience, they encourage and allow their children to have a point of view and they do discipline their children but often use rewards rather than punishments So, how do you know if you're an Authoritative Parent? Well, do you agree with statements like this: when i ask my child to explain something and he asks me, 'why?" i explain why Do you respect your child's opinion and are you okay with your child expressing their opinions even if they’re different from yours? instead of punishments, do you focus on disciplining your child using methods such as rewarding good behavior or taking away privileges? And do you encourage your child to talk about their feelings? If the answer is yes, then you are an Authoritative Parent

However, what about the parent who doesn’t encourage their child to voice their own opinion? Well, you can still be Authoritative as long as you explain your rules or opinion to your child depends on your point of view You see, in every job that must be done, there is an element of fun Find the fun and snap, the job's a game and every task you undertake becomes a piece of cake, a look, a spree, it's very clear to see that a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, medicine go down, medicine go down, just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down in a most

Now, before we go any further, i'd like to ask you, the viewer, "What type of viewer was your mom and dad?" Were they Authoritarian or Authoritative or something else?" Please comment below We’ll come back to this question again later in the video So, what are the benefits of Authoritative Parenting? A number of studies have found that children of Authoritative Parents are less likely to engage in drugs, alcohol and delinquent behavior

In addition, encouraging independence in children has been linked to better problem solving and higher resilience So, these all sound great Who wouldn't want this result? Well, what are the downsides of Authoritative Parenting? One, your child may still rebel Since this parenting style all hinges on reasoning, if your child refuses to listen, you'll have a very hard time instilling discipline and two, its very very hard to implement Authoritative Parenting Do you have the patience and perseverance to reason with a moody and angry child? Are you willing to make the mental and emotional investment using your reasoning for all your rules? Are you going to be consistent in how you discipline? Now, this topic of being an Authoritative Parent isn't something i can fit into a short youtube video and like I said, its a lot of work but if you're really interested in taking the first step in learning how to be an Authoritative Parent, then please sign up for my free checklist: Keys to be an Authoritative Parent

Both parenting styles also encourage and allow their child to have a point of view but the difference in Permissive Parenting is Permissive Parents do not set any expectations for their child and there's a reluctance to enforce any rules [Movie Scenes] Hey daddy, i want to to go get a Goose i just want you to know that if you need anything, don't be shy ok? There are no rules in this house, I’m not like a regular mom I’m a cool mom Right Regina? Please stop talking

Ok What’s with the kid wearing a camerovaon? I let him wear whatever he wants to wear Those boots are the best i know right? I’ll have a hotdog with a mustard and Frankenstein, what do you want? 30 packets of ketchup

Alright 30 packets of ketchup Ouuu Nice hit pal Alright sweetheart, alright darling, you'll get your golden goose as soon as you get home No I want one of those

This is like a whole new school of child raising I’m telling you You give the kid options instead of orders, you know, let him make the right decision In my next video, I’m going to deep dive into permissive parenting and share 7 reasons why I think this type of parenting can be a disaster for kids In the mean time, here’s how you can find out if you’re a Permissive parent

So, do you often agree with statements like: I often use bribes with my child to get him to do something he doesn't want to do or I’ll give into my child when he or she has a tantrum or my child and i are equals and friends and lastly, what about: I want my child to make their own mistakes and won't impose my own rules If the answer is yes, then you're probably a Permissive Parent Ok So, let’s get to the last parenting style and that is Uninvolved & Neglectful Parenting Now, if you're watching this, I’m going to guess this isn’t probably for you

I’m not going to waste too much time explaining this but you only fall into this category if you neither enforce rules with your child and have a cold distant relationship with your child In this scenario, for the most part, the child is on their own with their parent only taking care of the basic need required to survive and sometimes even, that basic requirement isn’t met Now that you know the four types of parenting styles, I’ll like to invite you to download my checklist on how to start to become an Authoritative Parent As discussed, while research shows this parenting style is the most effective in raising successful children, it’s also the hardest to implement So, download the checklist, the link is below in the youtube video description and if you’re interested in joining a community of parents who are trying to be the best parents they can be, then request to join the seed2stem Facebook group and well do our best to help you
