Four Parenting Styles
I found this article about the four main parenting styles interesting:

https://www.verywellfamily.com/types-of-...es-1095045

Parenting is often thought of as a one-dimensional spectrum between permissiveness and authoritarianism, but this article makes it two-dimensional, which I think helps clarify things a bit better. I'm glad to see a distinction being made between "authoritative" and "authoritarian".

RE: Four Parenting Styles
i would say C is authoritative fo sho. He explains everything sooooo much so well. I try to get him to be permissive lololol....sometimes he can become that but not lately and it's led to some bad lessons for me i guess....J is def more authoritarian and he's been called out on it, i see him trying to be more like C now. He obviously has a lot to learn, lol.

Nancy is authoritarian. Why her daughter turned out ok. If i don't turn out ok it's J's fault.

I think I would be authoritarian, but also compassionate, if I had any children.
