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

    I don't feel like she was though. Because she did encourage idependence and she didn't start out checking things. It wasn't until after I got caught a few times she did

    "Guided mostly" means she was a Helicopter Parent. This term also indicates that on occasion those whirling helicopter blades caused some damage to you. This would especially be true of independently-minded children, assuming you were one of those.

    My ENFJ mom was a helicopter parent for sure, and my ISTJ dad was pretty neutral about pretty much any situation so I guess free range for him.

    Though despite my mom being a helicopter parent I did get a lot of privileges and freedom in my life. I got to do a lot of fun things and got excused from a lot of shit since I'm their only kid. Plus, I know whenever she was chasing me down it was because she wanted me to have more opportunities later in life.

    You deserve a roasting for that.

    I think my parents were a mix depending on what I was up to/needed

    This depends on whether or not the privileges had to be earned.

    Here's an example from a Mormon family of my acquaintance. The family lived out in the country, their kids were too young to drive yet. Or if they had licenses, gas money to drive with was doled out to them.

    In order to be allowed the "privilege" of a fun trip into town, these kids were required to tear apart a car engine and put it back together again.

    That's an extreme example of helicopter parenting, but it's useful for making the distinction between a privilege as a reward for good behavior (helicoptering) or privilege as in simply being a free-range child.

    Free range parent. I'm not sure they entirely had a choice. I was pretty independent.

    My dad was a free-range parent, I think. My mother is a little more complex, free range about some things, helicopter about others.

    Free-range toward me, but mostly because my sibling and their own in-fighting kept my parents busy.

    That style has a way of breeding independence, but also at times a sense of isolation.
