Parenting Types- Permissive
There are three parenting styles: Permissive, Authoritarian, and Authoritative. Of these styles, Permissive is one of them used by Americans in todays society. Now what is this parenting style? This is a time when parents do not really care to know about their child and the childs actions. There are few rules, not many expectations, and few punishments. The child can get away with almost anything.
Either the parents are too busy to spend time with their children, which happens often in society, or they just do not wish to be a part of the family life. Most people rarely have the time to relax with the economy right now. People ask for more hours attempting to pay the bills. Spending time with your family is more work when you return home. The parents are never around to carry out the rules or punish their children.
Does Permissive Parenting Work?
Depends on what you mean by "work". If you mean "cause issues", yes, this parenting style works. Permissive parenting can work only one way: if the child learns from the adults from their childhood. Most children do not learn from their adults. Instead they follow in their parents footsteps being a permissive parent. This fact is depressing and upsetting at the same time.
The children often turn out to be as their genetics programed them to be. It depends on their personality type and how they respond to the parenting. However most children will do poorly with this parenting type. It is the least positive responding parenting style used in society.
