I think that learning about parenting styles and the effects it has on children is very interesting. I did a research paper last fall about parenting styles and which one is proven to work the best for children. All the research pointed towards active parenting (authoritative). My parents are actually authoritative and I have seen the positive effects on my siblings and I. They parented with lots of love and also had high expectations for us. When we needed to be punished we were punished with the knowledge of what we did wrong. My parents took an active part in their children's lives and let us know that no matter what we did they still loved us.
