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.
