Permissive parenting is a parenting style that is a parenting style that can be argued as bad and good to a child. While authoritarian and authoritative parents have rules set for their child, permissive parents don't have many rules for their child to follow and they are considered more laid back. The parents may set rules to try and keep their children from harm but they rarely ever enforce them and take action. The reason on why permissive parents do this is because they feel “they want to be more like a friend than a parent and think parental controls and discipline measures will hinder that relationship” (Stephan Walton). Amy Morin said, “They often encourage their children to talk with them about their problems, but they usually don't put much effort into discouraging poor choices or bad behavior.” This shows that as parents, they can make their child open up and talk to them but never help them make the right decisions.
Because teenagers develop intimate relationships they tend not to share anymore with their parents feelings of intimacy because they believe that only their friends can understand them since they belong in a similar age group (Psychology Today, 2011). According to Fuhrman (1990), peer pressure produces a wide variety of problems. The negative side of having peers is that they can influence beyond its limitations. They are engaged in unnecessary doings expected with their age levels. Negative peer pressure is the influence others have on their peers that encourages them to engage in detrimental behaviours.
This is obviously not always the case. Becoming teen parents can sometimes be an irresponsible act because the pregnancies are not always planned. Therefore, I can see and understand why people may come to the conclusion of thinking that teen moms are too young to care for their babies. Myself and many other teen moms are living proof of this idea being completely wrong. Becoming parents at whatever age is an an enormous responsibility.
In a relationship, some says that mysteries are more challenging and too much certainty will somehow remove the excitement in the relationship. Children nowadays are afraid of disclosing with their families but a role of a parent is to guide them and correct them when they’re taking the wrong direction. In connectedness and separateness, it can make a person more whole, however Baxter and Montgomery believes that too much connection can affect the other because of the loss of individuality. A parent-child relationship is normal if they’re too connected but there are times that a person needs to be alone because it’s always the self who will make decisions in
I know there are more than one paths to choose and my path is not necessarily the right path for my children, however, I hope they learn from my mistakes. I know they will make plenty of mistakes of their own and will get hurt emotionally along the way, I just wish I could protect them from that. I fear that I can see them heading towards hurt feelings, but my advise is not important anymore and I will not be able to stop them from getting hurt. A parent has a lot of influence on small children, but as they grow that influence lessens. The opinions of friends and peers become more important and have a big influence on the child.
In accordance with those who support the permissive parenting, they give a reason that the child will resist to cooperate with parents and see them as an enemy if the parents give them punishments, and it also provoke rebelliousness thoughts in children (Baumrind, 1966). Most of Thai parents are more likely to be the authoritarian and authoritative parents, due to Thai culture and beliefs that anything the elders say and teach always right, and children must believe and obey without doubt. Some of them even planned their child’s life in each year until the age of thirty without asking willingness of the kid. This might create huge pressure to the child as a student when their parents force them to study in the faculty they do not want to be with the reason that it would be better for the children themselves when they grow up. Still, students who have to be in this kind of situation mostly ended up to reluctantly study in the path that their parents
Their child’s self- expression and independence are totally restrain by their parents. Permissive parenting is refer to the parents who set no limits, demands and expectation unless the things may harm their child. Their child is totally freedom to do what they want and free to make their choices. Although there are three different parenting styles, but many research and studies had been focusing more on the authoritative and authoritarian parenting styles, they do not mentioned much about the permissive parenting styles. It is clearly seems that authoritative and authoritarian parenting styles are more commonly used by the parents.
Why Are You Acting Crazy? Children are one of the biggest treasures this is what many couples would say when asked about children. Undeniably, raising children can give a new meaning to life to many parents. But at the same time, having a child often has several problems that new parents might have to deal with; one of them is when a child misbehaves at school, at home, or wherever. Often, adults do not take the time to understand why their child acts up.
Most parents want to give their children the best possible future. Like a caring significant other, a steady job, or even a magic button to maracisly make a kid shut up. I believe good parents would give their child a set of morals that would be helpful throughout the hardships of life. Life is tough though and morals are not simply just given out to a kid as soon as they pop them out.The life lessons people experience can create a person’s morals. Some people learn morals quite quickly while some children even have better morals than most adults.
A conflict is shared between many teenagers. Teenagers coming close to the age of adulthood trying to get a sense or a need to become independent. They feel a pressure of growing, finding a path which they will live on for possibly the rest of their lives. Not all understand fully the difficulty of starting their own lives without help of their parents. Teenagers often attempt to break away from living under the umbrella of their parent’s world before they have the maturity to function alone and this attempt is in actuality a misguided gesture as teenagers often fail to recognize the authentic realities and harshness of the real world.
