Parenting Style Quiz
Every parent should want what’s best for their child. And every parent is free to raise their baby as they please. However, kids need rules. They do need to learn right and wrong. As well as… pretty much everything else in life. When it comes to children’s behavior, it’s not just about who they inherently are as individuals or the culture they grew up in. A child’s future is largely sculpted by the parenting style they had growing up.
Parenting styles can differ wildly. When it comes to kids, a little common sense can sometimes be hard to find. There’s always a question of, ‘am I doing the right thing?’ And the answer can be pretty tricky to come by, whether you’re a helicopter parent or not. Parenting styles can change when a child is two or four or 16. Expectations of your child can change too. And children, depending on their behavior, can dictate how we choose to parent. Often, you’ll hear parents say the child is parenting them!
There’s hardly a right answer for the age-old question. And this quiz certainly isn’t a test to see if your parenting style is a ‘good one.’ We’re merely going to ask you some fun questions to find out what parenting style you use the most. Like it or not, you’ve probably got shades of every style! Take this quiz and find out what parenting style you use, and perhaps it’ll add just a little extra perspective to your parenting skills.

A parenting style is to the way a parent teaches their child about the world. Often, parenting styles come down to how we ourselves were parented. But each parent can learn and try to do better than their parents did. It's tough to know which parenting style works best, and we want to feel like our parenting style is the best way to raise our children. But it's tricky to know exactly when we should support or when we should be strict. When we should be permissive or show up as the authoritarian. When we step back, or when we step in.
Every parent wants their child to be happy. And every child ultimately wants the same for their parent. We may come to find our parenting style can change day-to-day. And we hopefully learn how to be better parents as we go along.
Regardless, every parent knows we love our kids. And at the end of the day, that's the best parenting style there is.
