Which Type of Parents Are You?

permissive, authoritarian and authoritative parents

In pedagogical literature, the most common typology of parents contains three types:

  • authoritative parents,
  • authoritarian parents
  • permissive parents. 

The mentioned typology is created according to how parents and their children distribute the rights and duties between themselves. Authoritarian parents have all rights. Their children only must obey duties these the parent define. In contrast, permissive parents perform all duties and give all rights to children. The third type, authoritative parents, create a balance between rights and duties according to the abilities of children and themselves.
