    If an activity kept us occupied for more than five minutes, my folks invested large sums of money in making sure that activity (books, LEGOs, Nintendo) was available to occupy our attention spans all day.

    These child rearing styles are simply parochial. To understand how child rearing practices contribute to personality, we need an historical perspective. A place to start is http://www.psychohistory.com/htm/eln...ldrearing.html

    So in short we might say there is the sacrificial form of chlld rearing, the abusive form of child rearing, the authoritarian form of child rearing and the helping form of child rearing.

    Each form of historical child rearing is an improvement on the past form, and all are dependent on relative prosperity.

    I, for instance, had an authoritarian form of child rearing and so I have a controlled and controlling personality, but I have discovered the helping form of child rearing in therapy and so aspire to an empathic and creative personality.

    I was given a lot of freedom growing up. Not too much was restricted, and I was permitted to what I wanted so long as it didn't cause a tangible problem (such as breaking something, or hurting myself). I'm rather greatful for it.

    Mother = helicopter (overprotective...not trusting me with things)

    Father = free range (too little one-on-one interaction besides criticism, guess it was because he was in 40s when I was born and I have 4 siblings)

    Dad was a combination of tiger and helicopter. He was the biggest cunt I have ever seen in my life.
    Mom was free range.

    Me too.

    But my mom was a bit of a tiger mom...she was really overprotective.

    Even so, I always had way more freedom than the other kids I knew. I am very grateful for that.

    Helicopter > Tiger > Free-Range
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Free Range with a little Helicopter. Failed attempts at Tiger.

    Tiger-Helicopter combo. It was most unpleasant.
