    Here's a fun quiz: Test: What's Your Parenting Style? - Parenting.com


    My result:

    When it comes to
    Shaping Their Character
    You're

    Involved but Flexible



    When it comes to
    Making the Rules
    You're

    Democratic


    When it comes to
    Enforcing Discipline
    You're

    Strict

    I'd say that's pretty accurate, though I'm not sure I'm really that strict.

    I don't have any children so this is purely speculative.

    I've always thought you need to let them explore and take the risks, but stop them from being permanently injured or dying. You need to show enough discipline that they learn and don't end up as a brat with a PD, but not enough that they are beaten and have no self esteem. And make discipline clearly connected to the act you are disciplining for, so the connection won't be my parents are angry, more my parents are angry because... Impose your ideals sometimes, but let them be themselves and find their own ideals (as long as they are somewhere within reason, not killing people). Children have to play, help them follow their interests their way (don't take over them like some parents). It probably depends on the child too. Different children will be better off with different things. A good relationship with them would be important also. I think a close and loving family is worth a lot in terms of confidence and perspective.
    Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.
