There are few concepts that we covered in class and out textbook that I will easily remember 5 years from now. One concept that really stood out to me was the different parenting types such as: permissive, authoritative and authoritarian. Each of these different parenting styles have specific qualities that will set children apart from others throughout their life. I believe that I will remember this concept the most in 5 years because it taught me how I want to raise my children (authoritative) so they are set up to succeed and deal with life's mishaps the best over the other permissive and authoritarian parenting styles. I also believe that I will remember this concept, because I was able to recognize how my parents raised me and how it still has an impact on my today in my life's adventures. In addition another reason why I feel I will remember the different parenting styles and the style that I want to use with my children in the future is, because it is so simple for me to recognize and place value on how to raise my future children; with now knowing the too "hard," "soft" and "just right" approach to parenting it is something that I can easily reflect back on and remember when I am scolding or showing my children affection. I will be able to easily remember and evaluate myself, because the concepts of each are easy to remember thanks to talking and reading about them in psych.
