Discovering your Parenting Style: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Knowing your parenting style is useful for helping you understand the parent you are and helping you become the parent you want to be. Your parenting style not only influences your interactions with your child and the type of discipline that you use, but can also impact your relationship with your parenting partner if you have opposing styles.

In this session you will:

  • identify your parenting style.
  • learn about the impact of your parenting style on your children
  • discuss strategies to deal with conflict if your parenting partner has an opposing style.
