What Are The Three Main Parenting Styles?

There are a lot of parenting styles. But what are the 3 main parenting styles you need to be aware of?

1) Stage 1 is the least mature stage. 1:30] Kids are usually selfish, manipulative, getting out of control. The parenting style required for this stage is ‘Consequence’. Since there’s no cooperation from children, you have to pick a kind of consequence that doesn’t require cooperation at all.

2) Stage 2 is about cooperation 3:49]. Kids are already cooperating with you. Now, you’re willing to negotiate. “Let’s work together” is a hallmark of Stage 2. Now you choose a kind of consequence that requires cooperation. You can make them write an essay about a rule he broke, who is hurt by it and what’s his commitment looking forward. Now, you communicate with them. So this parenting style is called, “Communicator.”

3) Stage 3 is called the “Consultant”. 6:53] This happens when your kids are older and ask for your advice.

When kids shift from different stages, you also get to shift along with them with your parenting style.

Episode 092 – Sleep Training and Attachment Parenting

There’s a commonly held belief among the devotees of attachment parenting that sleep training isn’t compatible with their parenting style. That’s not surprising, since one of the founders of the attachment parenting movement, Dr. Bill Sears, amended the core principles of his system to include “Beware of baby trainers.”

But having worked with parents who subscribe to this approach, I have found that there’s plenty of room for compromise. You can stick to every fundamental rule of the attachment parenting model and still teach your baby the skills they need to sleep through the night.
