Many new parents often question on what is the proper way to raise their children There are 3 child-rearing practices Authoritarian Permissive and Authoritative The two forms practiced by the parents in the question are Authoritarian and Authoritative There are advantages and disadvantages to these two forms of parenting though AUTHORITARIAN- parents impose rules and expect blind obedience Many people were and still are raised in authoritarian households Some advantages I can see coming from this are respect and recognition of authority well behaved child doing as they are told immediately and respect toward others These are all qualities that are not only instilled in children from authoritarian households but are demanded On the other side though I can see some negative aspects child feeling stressed or scared by parents worrying about not meeting expectations and more worried about consequences non-questioning and confused because rules are not explained AUTHORITATIVE- Parents are both demanding and responsive They exert control not only by setting rules and enforcing them but also by explaining the reasons and especially with older children encouraging open discussion and allowing exceptions when making the rules This is the most common for of child-rearing The advantages of this are numerous so I will only name a few Children see parents as friends but also respect them as parents parents respect the childs input on issues child becomes closer to parents and child understands reasoning behind decisions As for disadvantages I can see two main problems In a dispute the parent may swing into an authoritarian role This confuses and angers the child resulting in an escalation in conflict between the parent and the child Also the child may see the parents as more of a friend than an authority figure This could result in a loss of respect and communication with the parent Furthermore if the parent fails to present themselves as more of an authority figure for fear of being to hard on
