The Parenting Style Test and What It Means:

Parenting Style is another way that mental health professionals, therapists and psychologists use to name the way a person handles being a parent. It includes what techniques they use, and how they handle being a caregiver to a child. Part of our understanding of child development comes from observations of children with and without their parents, and one of the main breakthroughs was an understanding that, in general, children could be could into categories based on how they behaved around their parents. When this was studied more, it turned out that how the parents were interacting with their children or their style of parenting was the number one predictor of which category these children would fall into. 

The Parent Test: Parent Styles and More 

The Paren Test on ABC/HULU is a fascinating look inside the lives of real family's who have self-identified their parenting style. Each week, four of the families s are put through the test with two different scenarios, filmed in and around the families’ homes. fter watching the videos, the parents in the back row comment and vote on which parenting style they found to be the most effective; eventually, the “most effective” style of parenting will be put through to the semi-final.

As a family systems therapist and occasional professor to grad-school students, this insight and live footage of parenting in action is unpresedenxted. I have a feeling clip of this will be shown as parenting examples in action for years to come in Developmental Psych classes across the globe!

Authoritative Parenting

Authoritative parenting is a style characterized by high demands and high responsiveness. These parents set clear rules and expectations for their children and provide warmth, support, and understanding. Research has shown that children of authoritative parents have higher self-esteem, better social skills, and more successful academic performance. They also tend to be less prone to behavioral problems and have better mental health outcomes.

One of the critical elements of authoritative parenting is communication. These parents encourage open and honest communication with their children and actively listen to their children's thoughts and feelings. This helps children develop strong problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, which are essential for success.

Authoritarian Parenting

In contrast, authoritarian parenting is characterized by high demands and low responsiveness. These parents set strict rules and expect their children to obey without question. They may use punishment as a means of control and do not encourage open communication or independence.

While children of authoritarian parents may comply with rules and expectations, they may struggle with self-esteem, self-direction, and social skills. They may also have a higher risk of behavioral problems and poor mental health outcomes.

Permissive Parenting

Permissive parenting is characterized by low demands and high responsiveness. These parents set few rules and offer little guidance or discipline. They may also be overindulgent, providing children with material possessions and allowing them to make decisions without consequences.

While children of permissive parents may enjoy more freedom but struggle with self-control, self-discipline, and decision-making. They may also have a higher risk of behavioral problems, poor academic performance, and poor mental health outcomes.

Uninvolved Parenting

Uninvolved parenting is characterized by low demands and low responsiveness. These parents may neglect their children's needs and provide little guidance or support. This can lead to emotional and behavioral problems for children, as well as poor academic performance and mental health outcomes.
