Looking down the road I hope to be married and be thinking about having kids. The thing that I will remember the most at this point in my life from psychology is the different kind of parenting styles and how they affect how the child turns out. I want to raise my children so that they have discipline but also support and love. According to an article by Kendra Cherry there are four important dimensions of parenting. These four are disciplinary strategies, warmth and nurture, communication styles, and expectations of maturity and control. From these four dimensions there are 3 main types of parenting. These are the types we learned about in Psychology; permissive, authoritarian, and authoritative. Cherry states that the type of parenting can be reflected on certain aspects such as the persons culture, personality, family size, SES, educational level and religion. These are all things that could influence a person in how they raise their children. But, research has found that parents who raise their children with an authoritative style, have limits but are supportive, usually have children who are happy, capable, and successful. From learning about this information in our psychology class I will remember to raise my child in a authoritative style because I have learned that it usually produces the most well-balanced children.
