Are Permissive Parents Spoiling Their Children?

Alfie Kohn, PhD writer and speaker, talks with Robbyn Peters Bennett with about moving beyond rewards and punishment. Dr. Kohn, using compelling scientific evidence, challenges the popular cultural belief that permissive, overly protective, and non-punishing sympathetic approaches to parenting is creating spoiled children. He argues that in fact, the major threat to healthy child development is posed by parenting that is too controlling rather than too indulgent.


Permissive Parenting – What It Is and The Long Term Effects on a Child’s Self Esteem

What is permissive parenting and how does it affect us? The way we parent our children, and the way we were parented, affects our sense of self-esteem and personality.

We make beliefs out of circumstances that happened to us as children.

In this video about permissive parenting, you will see examples of times parents were permissive, and how it affected the child long term. Here’s an example:

You don’t hold yourself accountable because no one ever held you accountable when you were a child, because you had permissive parents. You now do this, OR you are too controlling with your own children… although, you still struggle yourself with holding yourself accountable… because you’re still mad you were abandoned AND because you were never taught how to make decisions, have limits.

We are working towards being loving and firm. Not too loving and friends with our children. But instead, having a healthy relationship, where we guide them, they trust us, and go out into the world with limits and boundaries so they feel safe to explore and come back to us.

YOU WANT to be accountable, but instead you procrastinate and end up telling yourself you’re not good enough, just the same way you felt as a child. You can stop doing this by re-parenting your inner child , dropping the emotional baggage and being loving and firm at the same time.

What Is Permissive Parenting? | Ventuno The Raising – Parenting Show

Permissive parenting is sometimes known as indulgent parenting. Parents who exhibit this style make relatively few demands upon their children. Because these parents have low expectations for self-control and maturity, they rarely discipline their children.

Permissive Parenting | Why Is Permissive Parenting Bad

Permissive Parenting is often blamed for creating spoiled children, who are out of control. But not for the reason most people think.

In this video I will briefly discuss some of the results of permissive parenting.

Many of us think that what the spoiled child needs is a firm hand. Needs to be shown who is the boss. We think he needs to be punished. What children really need is to be better understood.
The permissive parent may mean well. They want their child to have some freedom to become the person they are and want to be, to learn to make their own choices. And those things are crucial for the growth of the child. But they need to start with security. Always. Until they feel secure, and safe they don’t have a good solid foundation for growing their emotional maturity. They are not open to learning the many lessons of life when they are stressed out.

Instead of permissive parenting, what a lot of us do is control our children. We want to decide what kind of person they should be, and how they should live their life. Behave this way, say this, think that. That does not help their growth either. And it gives them a poor example of how to treat other people. Imagine a friend doing it to you.

My mission is to help parents become the parents they want to be. I do that by giving you an understanding of the child, and why they need what they need. But understanding is not what makes a parent change. We also need small steps to take. One at a time, and focused. Changing ourselves, our views, is not an easy task. That’s why simply reading a book is not enough. We need to shift our perspective. We need to be aware of our tendencies, and we need to think about the consequences of our actions. Our kids are picking up on everything.

In this video I will briefly discuss some of the results of permissive parenting. 0:00

You don’t want your child to grow up to be an adult who needs to get his way all the time, and who gets frustrated when he doesn’t. 0:06

To me parenting is mostly about guiding your child into maturity. 0:14

You don’t want your child to think that happiness is about getting what you want 0:18

Or they will just try and get one thing after another. And we all know that doesn’t lead to happiness 0:23

You don’t want your child to become an adult who lets people walk all over them 0:29

You show them how to avoid that by not letting them walk all over you. 0:33

In a respectful way 0:37

How you interact with your child is the biggest lesson your child gets on how to interact with others 0:39

You want them to grow up to be a mature adult who can have emotions without having a tantrum 0:46

Or stuffing the feelings deep down only to have them come back out later 0:51

They need practice at not getting their way, and learning to manage the emotions that result from it 0:57

They also need to feel secure, like someone is looking out for them 1:02

They need the security of knowing that if they go too far, you will stop them, for their own good 1:07

If they don’t have that sense, they will be stressed out, scared 1:11

Because they really don’t know where they are going 1:16

They will push you to see if they can get that sense of security until they get it, or until you lose it, and yell at them to stop 1:20

If you want to develop a parenting style that feels natural
And doesn’t include power struggles 1:27

Or yelling 1:30
