What parenting style do/did you grow up with?
Your parenting style can affect everything from how much your child weighs to how she feels about herself. It's important to ensure your parenting style is supporting healthy growth and development because the way you interact with your child and how you discipline her will influence her for the rest of her life.
Researchers have identified four types of parenting styles: authoritarian, authoritative, permissive and uninvolved. Each style takes a different approach to raising children, and can be identified by a number of different characteristics.
