3 Different Parenting Styles: What is your Parenting Style?

So we all know that every parent is different and has a different parenting style...... There are 3 different parenting styles that I learned in Child Development that I would like to share with you.

1. Authoritarian: Always try to be in control and exert their control on the children. These parents set strict rules and standards for the children. Parents tend to focus on bad behavior rather than positive behavior. Children are often punished. 

2. Permissive: Give up most of the control to the children. The parents usually will make few rules and the rules are not usually enforced. They don't want to be tied to routines they want their child or children to feel free. These parents give children as many choices as possible and they tend to accept a child's behavior whether it's good or bad behavior. 

3. Democratic or Authoritative: These parents help their children learn to be responsible for themselves and to think about the consequences of their actions. They monitor their children behavior to make sure they follow through on rules and expectations. They do this with a love and warming manner. They try to reinforce the good behavior rather than focus on the bad behavior.

What is your Parenting Style?

To figure out what is your parenting style try to think about what you want your children to learn. Research parenting styles and find what fits best for you. Make sure you are consistent and encourage your child to make the right choices so they can build confidence. The most important is not to compare one child to another because every child is different. Express your love to your children and allow them to have some fun. Play time can allow for expression and learning. Do things you and your children will both enjoy.

A Day In My Life: 9/11/2014

Hey everyone! Here is a day in my life for September 11, 2014.

The Alarm went off at 7:30am because today I take Chloe to her 18 month Check Up. I got my self and her dressed and headed in to town. Her appointment was not until 9am but we got seen a little early. She weighs 22 pounds and is 31 inches long. Chloe got 1 shot which she hates and it always makes her just want to sleep. Anyways we got home and ate something about 10am and then we went outside around 10:30am for a little play time outside. At 11:30 I did the dishes.

At 2:30pm Chloe took a nap and I cleaned the room and watched Sex and The City Movie. Chloe slept all the way till about 5:15pm which normally I don't let her sleep that long but after she gets shots they always make her feel a little crappy so I just let her sleep and get some rest. After she wakes up we got supper and we went on a walk about 7:30pm. I been putting going on a walk to Chloe bed time routine because I feel like it will help her calm down and get ready for bed. We came in about 8pm and I gave Chloe a bath. After bath Chloe got a bed time snack and we brush teeth. Then we usually will read books and Chloe was asleep about 10pm.

Waiting in the waiting room to see the doctor.

This was the design on the wall in the doctor office room. They have a different theme in each room.

Chloe was snacking on raisins while waiting on the doctor to show.

Playing outside for a little bit.

For some reason she loves sitting in this container. Usually the container holds her stuff animals but she will throw them all out and sit in it. Chloe got this for Christmas.

She loves this butterfly headband!

Poor baby....Every time she gets a shot it makes her not feel good.

*Here is a day in my life! I will do a full day on everything I do very soon. Chloe is still with her dad right now. Enjoying a break while I can.*
