Authoritarian, Permissive, or Loving Parenting
Welcome - we are glad you came for help!
The pendulum often swings back and forth, in different generations, between authoritarian and permissive parenting. You will discover that neither of these parenting models is loving or supportive of you or of your children’s highest good.
Notice who you feel responsible for - yourself and/or others. Are you taking responsibility for others' feelings while ignoring your own? Do you believe you can control how others feel? Do others have to be feeling good for you to feel good? Are you making others responsible for your feelings?
