An authoritative parent is one that remains in control and is both demanding and responsive with their children. They expect their children to hold a certain level of maturity. In this type of parenting style, the relationship between the parent and the child is very structured. The communication is very open between the two. The open communication allows the parent to provide a more understanding support.
Stone, Ingham, and Gibbins (2013) study the challenges that parents (focus group with parents of 3-7 years old children in UK) usually have about early sexual socialization as well as the reasons parents restrict the knowledge of children about sexual awareness. In this article, the authors investigate if giving children negative beliefs about their body make children have conflict and negative feelings about themselves. They also study about what would happen to children if parents give them positive education about sexuality or early sexual education, for example if children get more competences and confidence. This study shows that parents sometimes do not know what the best way to answer children’s challenging questions is. It can result in the feeling that they might be judged as “bad parents”, if they say “too much” and use “wrong terminology” and cross the boundaries of assumed allowable sexual knowledge of children.
Many would believe children learn and develop best when the ‘key worker’ system is implemented within a provision and when practitioners sustain a positive relationship and work in partnership with parents and carers. This is of importance as a positive relationship where the parents and carers can trust and respect one another, helps to provide an enabling environment for the children. Working in partnership benefits practitioners just as equally as it benefits parents. Parents and carers are the most important people and role models within children lives, however majority of parents have no choice but to work and that’s where our role of early years’ practitioners falls into place. Is it important to remember that parents and practitioners
Baumrind focused on communication and interaction between parents and child. Authoritarian parenting style; parents who have an authoritarian parenting style set strict rules for their children and rules are important for these parents. These families have a weak communication with their children. This communication based on discipline. Children have to
I agree that the highly effective parents are those who are authoritative. This type of parenting style give children structure, without making them into slaves or mindless robots. I do not think that children should be scared to the point that they tremble at the sight of their parents. That being said, it is important to be able to say NO at any time, and not feel bad about saying it. Passive parents do not raise good kids.
Taking this example, when the children enquire about where their parents are when they are not at home. Arising from this scenario child ends up being hurt when they finally discover the real reason affecting their family from mostly third parties for example from school or their neighborhood. Information that reaches the children from third parties devastates the children since it mostly is exaggerated or it is just said in a way that shocks the child, which leads the child to a state of dilemma. The child is exposed to intimate details of their parent’s relationship that may be mostly mislead, hence affects the child negatively in the long
Authoritative parenting often hold high expectations for their child, but manage their expectations with understanding and support for their child. They tend to encourage independence upon their child, and teach with nurturing and reason. Parents who use this type of parenting also rely on open communication with their child, which then implies a deeper understands. Results of having an authoritative figure is a child may develop self-responsibility, and high communication skills. Children also develop a sense of identity, and
Gerhardt points out that a lot of childhood and adolescent behaviors – such as aggression, depression, hyperactivity and poor academic performance can be traced back to the family inputs received as a baby. Children’s future lives are largely shaped by their experiences in babyhood. According to the WHO, many challenges in the modern adult society, including mental health conditions, social competence and criminality, have their roots in early childhood and therefore, parents have to ensure that enough investment is made into the child’s formative years (Britto, Engle and Super, 81). This again points to the fact
Living in a Restricted World When an adolescent asks his or her parent about the issue of morals, they tend to receive the frequent response, “You are too young to worry about such things.”An excerpt of “I listen to My Parents and I Wonder What They Believe,” by Robert Coles, theorizes that parents avoid uncomfortable questions because parents do not know their own beliefs. Parents, under the false presumption that children do not encounter moral issues in their adolescent years, strive to protect their “innocent” children from the harsh realities of the world. As a result, the moral abdication of a parent restricts the advancement of a child’s personal morals. First, children replicate established beliefs and mannerisms set by parents in order to gain an understanding of the world around them. Robert Coles interviews one child who says, “You should honor your father and mother most of all; that’s why you should find out what they think and then sort of copy them.”(Coles, 1980, p.439) The moral abdication of parents restricts the advancement of a child’s personal morals because children are under the presumption that they are to copy their parents.
This style allows the parents to avoid responsibility for the child’s development which results in behavioral issues such as, lack of impulse control, self-centeredness, and the potential to become a substance abuser (Human-Hendricks, Anja R. and Nicolette V. Roman). In the authoritative parenting style love, support and warmth are welcomed. This style provides structure for the child along with rules but in this style the child can help in the decision-making process for rules and other things that affect them. For this parenting style, a few of the behavioral outcomes are motivation, achievement, an outgoing personality, friendliness, and the child has a good chance of becoming a well-adjusted adult (Human-Hendricks, Anja R. and Nicolette V. Roman). If one was to look at each of the parenting styles provided and consider the behavioral outcomes for them, one could see that the authoritative parenting style seems to be the most beneficial.
The roles engaged are not the same but they are complementary. Parents know their own child best and the childminder have a general knowledge of childâ€TMs developments. Between parents, childminders and the child, if the child is going to expand well, together they must trust and respect each other. Occasionally, parents may have had dreadful experiences during their education so when their child unites with a particular group setting, all of those previous memories may return. Due to
Children who are strong feel confident when meeting new people, like to do nice things for others, are loving and lovable, and are optimistic about life and are able to stand up to peer pressure so they can avoid using drugs, drinking alcohol, and smoking (Staff). Parents fear their children having strength is horrible, but in the contrary, it is not. Give kids freedom to figure things out in their own way within the boundaries you have set; parents should walk an acceptable line between respecting a child 's need for independence and privacy
When parents give children positive attention, a stronger bond with a parent is clear. Children may see their parents as a full and competent human being once the divorce has occurred. The child can learn by watching their parents delightful independence and new positive relationship. A new found relationship or single life can also be of some benefit to
