I think I will really remember the different types of parenting styles the best. I want to have kids when I'm older and I'd obviously like to be the Authoritative type of parent, supportive of my kids and what they'd like to do but also making sure they know the rules and don't step outside of boundaries. I grew up with a permissive mom at one house and an authoritarian stepmother at my dad's house, hopefully that mix of parenting styles will give me an edge in being a really great authoritarian mom. I know I will also have to work at being this kind of parenting style because I tend to be affectionate and the people I love and trust tend to not be able to do any wrong in my eyes. Also, being female I prefer to be in control so being in the right balance of control without being to authoritarian could also be a challenge.
