Looking for Successful Parenting Styles for Raising Productive Children?

Various Parenting styles can be used to achieve positive benefits and rewards, however they are 3 basic ones that are widely used. These are: Authoritative, Authoritarian and Permissive styles.

However there are couple more I have personally used such as the Consultative and Natural or also called attachment parenting which works great as well.

According to the nature of situation, sometimes it is required to use a blend of different styles. You can delve deeper into the different styles, by clicking on thier links above where we will be giving examples and experiences so you can relate with a richer understanding.

Famous child expert and Spanish educator David Isaacs, PhD suggests that parents lay the foundation for prudence by instilling four good habits during the first seven years of life. Namely: obedience, sincerity, order, and justice.

He believes that these four habits are needed in the progressive development of other good habits within the next three phases: charity and fortitude (courage) in elementary level(8 to 12), faith and temperance (self-control) in adolescence (13-15), and hope and prudence (sound judgment) in young adulthood (16-18).

Futhermore, those who have these virtues will naturally find happiness and human maturity , he concludes.

Also whoever learns these secrets for instilling these virtues hold the keys for these parenting styles. These virtues are a result of using the various styles in a Child Centered way, which is about meeting the emotional needs and parenting with positive thinking.

Remember a child mirrors their behaviour from what they see and who they interact with in there surroundings. So who does a child interact with most? Obviously mom and dad.

So it is imperative that our modes of behaviour and the way we conduct ourselves leaves a positive lasting impression.
