Conflict over parenting? Are your styles different?
Why talk about parenting styles? Understanding your parenting style will increase trust between you and your partner, and avoid potential conflict in relationships. While you might have decided not to have children, have you found yourself with step-children? And nieces and nephews? Or grandchildren? The issue of parenting styles still arises. Parenting styles can be distilled into three attitudes: authoritative, authoritarian and permissive. Take the questionnaire to discover your style. This information can then provide a platform for useful discussion with your partner about your similarities and differences as parents. Then, ideally, you can decide on how you parent, rather than just stumble along.
