Five years from now, the concept I think I will remember the most is the different parenting styles. My parents were a huge influence on my life, even though their parenting style was more on the permissive side of the spectrum. In 5 years, I would love to be married and thinking of starting a family. Although I can't base my entire parenting methods on a short section from our psychology book, I think the 4 main parenting styles are good things to keep in mind when deciding to start a family. I was raised with more permissive parents than anything else, but reading the descriptions of each style, I think I will most likely be more along the lines of authoritative. Knowing that about myself will prepare me for my own children.
