Diana Baumrind Parenting Style

The Diana Baumrind Parenting Style is one of the most common ways of classifying different styles of parenting. Her research into how parents controlled their children and the degree of responsiveness to them led her to develop her Three Parenting Style Model.

Three Parenting Styles

Diana Baumrind's 3 Types of Parenting styles are Authoritarian, Permissive and Authoritative. This article gives an overview of the three parenting styles, and see below for more indepth articles.

Authoritarian Parenting Style

The first of Baumrind's types of parenting styles is the Authoritarian Parenting Style. This article covers the characteristics of this type of parenting style, and according to research, the effects on children.

Permissive Parenting Style
