    My dad was free range, my mom was in the middle, leaning towards helicopter. Really, I shouldn't say my dad raised me, so much as he was a much older brother who financially supported us. There was really only one parent. Not that I don't appreciate the money, but he wasn't super nice or responsible beyond that.

    Where does emotionally abusive and negligent come in?

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    Completely free range. They never tried to instill any values or rules of conduct in me. They told me if I did something wrong, which could probably be seen as instilling some kinda values, but I can't remember that they ever taught me a "correct" way to be and act. I was just running free most of the time, but I was also very respectful towards others and had a good sense of right and wrong. This parenting style combined with the knowledge that they were always gonna support me whatever I did made for a pretty great childhood.

    Although... If my little brother and I had let her, our mother definitely have been a helicopter parent, but we both have a strong will for independence and always refused her help.

    My mom was a combination of the "tiger mom" stereotype and "free range". My childhood was inconsistent. Neither party really had the heart to win the war; we cut our losses and agreed to disagree.

    Emotionally abusive sounds like Tiger, negligent sounds like Free-Range.

    Yeah, I was hoping for a "Joan Crawford" box. That'd sum it up for me.

    Free range with helicopter tendencies. They never managed to become full grown helicopter parents, because I've always been secretive.

    It was all I could do just to get some helicopter parenting. I was very independent as a child but at times I would have appreciated some homework help. How well I remember it.

    "Mom, come help me with my homework."
    "No."
    "Please, I'm stuck on this one problem."
    "No."

    Continuing to nag mom...

    She finally comes out of the kitchen just to shut me up.

    But as soon as she came and stood by me, I got the answer on my own! And this happened too many times to be a coincidence.

    Guided mostly but not given free range I was definitely grounded often for grades not doing chores and refusing to do homework. Also got in trouble for sibling rivalries. I was a chill kid over all. But my mom did encourage me and my brother to think critical about situations. And encouraged learning if the toy wasn't educational in some way we couldn't have it. Also only allowed an hour of tv a day unless it was with one of them. And after homework was done, which I would lie about and my brother would manipulate my mom into an extra half hour of tv. My mom started checking my homework then would double check what my assignments were so I was always in trouble for that
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so
