These pictures represent two parenting styles. The picture on the left represents an authoritarian style. The other picture represents a permissive style. Think about both styles. In what ways do they compare? In what ways are they different? When might someone use each of these styles? Likely, your parent has used both of these styles with you before. It's the old saying different times call for different measures.
Your turn: Think about a time that your parent used both of these styles with you. Write a short paragraph describing each time and why you think they chose the style they chose.
Bonus: source the name of the third style by looking it up in our text.
