    Default Which Parenting Style Were You Raised With?

    http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-proble...u-were-raised/

    "Today there are a variety of parenting styles. There are Tiger Moms, who are strict. There are Helicopter Parents, who hover over their kids' activities. At the opposite end of the spectrum there are the Free-Range Parents, who raise their children to become chickens."

    Was your mom a Tiger Mom, A Helicopter Parent, Or a Free-Range Parent?

    Pretty in the middle, leaning slightly towards free-range.

    That's free-range. Duh, look at your name.

    Well more like tiger dad(ESFJ), but close enough. My mom(ISFP) was just like stop whining, sit down and read this magazine, if you need me feel free not to call. So she was free-range-ish I guess, until I got hurt then she'd turn into helicopter-mom.

    ISFJ mother was like an helicopter parent, ESFP father more like free-range. So it was in between, I guess.

    None of them, really. My parents are a little overprotective but were never helicopters. My mom is e2 and can get a little pushy/protective and my dad is e5 and has always been pretty hands-off, but both of them have always been actively concerned with me and my brother and both encouraged us to be competent, ethical, and analytical thinkers.
