Authoritarian Parenting Style Makes Happy Children

 Key Authoritative/Supportive Parenting Characteristics:

  1. High Interest shown in your child
  2. High Trust in your child
  3. Clear Consistent Limits/Rules, allow freedom to explore/create within these boundaries
  4. High Independence given to your child
  5. Lots of time spent with your child 
  6. Consistent/measured punishments (NEVER violent) OR allow the consequences to happen/discuss them with your child
  • Quality vs. Quantity of time spent.  Being present and supportive/authoritarian in your time spent together is more valuable than more time but not being present/supportive/interested.
