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.
If you want to improve your parenting skills, first you need to know which type of parents you really are. Are you too strict or perhaps too permissive? Which type of parents do you really need to be? This test will give you answers which type of parent you are and description of that type.
