    I think you have to treat your children as respected friends. You have to be close to them but you have to keep your respect when dealing with them. If your children have the love and respect on you, they will always follow you.

    as Jasejames said, treat them as friends, but also make sure that they understand the boundaries that you have set for them. Allow them the freedom to do things and learn to do things for themselves with the knowledge that you will always be there for them. Don't give them too much freedom though, that they can be easily led astray.

    Style is less important than what is behind it.  A child living in a loving environment is going to learn from their parents.  Parents need to be what they want their children to be.   If it is happy, fit, funny, friendly, caring, etc.  They get that from parents.

    This is weird, I just recently posted a hub about this, anyway, I feel that  authoritative is the best. If your a permissive parent your are asking for your child to run over you. If you are authoritarian, there is little to no communication which isn't good either. By using the authoritative approach you are respecting your child. You set reasonable expectations and rules. You explain consequences to your child in a loving manner, not just "because I said so."

    To directly answer your question, Authoritative has proved the best style. Although you don't directly carry all the traits of one type of parenting, you do tend to lean to one side.

    If this is a question you wish to look further into, i have posted an essay in my hub. Based on loads of research by numerous Doctors and people with all sorts of letters behind their name.

    Have an awesome day! smile
