    I didn't interpret free-range to mean "no guidance" or getting stuff just to get it. I got plenty of guidance, it just wasn't helicoptery or tiger-mom-esque for the most part. And while I didn't have to take apart an engine I did have to pay for my own gas and insurance when I started driving.

    Parents divorced when I was 2. Control freak anti-video game tiger/helicopter stepmother and relatively passive father (but at least I still had my video games). Not allowed to watch R-rated movies and always felt watched. Father had custody, it's hard to say what my mother would've been, probably much more easygoing, although she was a Bible thumper who dabbled in a variety of Christian denominations, plus Wiccan at one point. Her style seemed generally influenced based on who she was dating at the time.

    I was never really encouraged to do well, just punished for doing poorly.

    You can surmise my answer by the following...

    When I was 18, I asked my mom what I was supposed to do.She was like..."figure it out"...

    So, I asked her to drive me to a cc. She was like "yeah, I don't have that time...sorry.". She did give me money for a bus pass though.

    That was my introduction into the world.

    ESFP mom raised me free range. Heck I walked about 10 blocks to go to kindergarten. Which as a kid that age seems like 7 miles.
    "Why don't you go outside and play?" was what she'd tell me often.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age. " - H.P. Lovecraft

    Mom was Helicopter/Tiger - structured, disciplined, and always ready to help out.
    Dad was a weird combo of Free range and Tiger. When the mood struck him, suddenly *everything* was under scrutiny.

    Something around helicopter and free range. Being the youngest has its pros and cons.

    Father was more free ranged while my mother was generally more helicopter (not always.)

    Siblings that would rather me just do my own thing while other siblings are a bit overprotective.

    Mama was helicopter when guilt struck. Free-range when selfishness and alcoholism was leading.
