The best parenting style has been researched on for so many years especially by developmental psychologists. There are four main types of parenting styles.
The authoritarian, authoritative, permissive and uninvolved parenting. They all have their strengths and weaknesses. There bone of contention here is that there is a debate as to which strategy is best to raise kids.
So we all grew up differently and have different upbringings. Some children raised in dramatically different environments can later grow up to have remarkably similar personalities. Conversely, children who share a home and are raised in the same environment can grow up to have very different personalities.
Despite all these challenges, researchers have posited that there are links between parenting styles and the effects these styles have on children
Parenting style differs and I don’t think there’s a standardized measure of which method is the best. There are different parenting styles. People actually find it really offensive when people try to give their unsolicited advice on how best to raise a child, while others don/t see anything with other people correcting their child.
Here’s what I think, regardless of how you decide to raise your child, there are perfect examples of people that turned out good and bad with it. Hence, there are advantages and disadvantages to all the parenting styles. There are pastors’ children that didn’t turn out to be the best individuals.
Similarly, there are children of thieves or people that have been tagged defaulters that turned out better than expected. There’s no straight rule to raising children. Just adopt the style you’re most comfortable with and don’t let pressure from anyone influence how you want to raise your child. As long as the end result is to be a great parent by raising happy children.
