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.
Research indicates that happy people create happy relationships, not the other way around! If you believe you need a relationship to be happy, or the "right" relationship, you may stay stuck being unhappy. Unhappy people either don't get into relationships, or often create unhappy relationships. Put your energy into making yourself happy and then see what happens!
