In your initial post, consider the Four Prototypic Dimensions of Parenting and address the following:
Which style best describes the approach used by your parents/guardians when you were growing up?
Which style do you (or would you) use with your children?
What impact do you think the parenting-style you experienced growing up has had on you? Has it influenced (or would it influence) your style as a parent?
Be sure to support your responses and give examples.
