What's Your Parenting Style?
Learning How to Parent as A Team
Proactive Style of Parenting
If you have the proactive style of parenting, you have firm, unmistakable limits that are clearly conveyed to your child. This style of parenting fosters age-appropriate, independent decision making by your child.
When misbehavior occurs, words are followed by appropriate action. Your parenting is like having a backyard surrounded by a sturdy fence. Your child can choose to run or swing or slide but the boundaries of his yard are clear. You are teaching your child the skills he needs to become capable, responsible, and to be motivated from within. His ability to accept limits and act in acceptable ways will help him handle life’s ups and downs.
