Someone asked a similar question the other day, but I'm interested in something a bit more specific. What's your parenting style vs your parents. Did you chose to parent differently than your parents?
Here's the 4 different types of parenting styles:
In this style of parenting, children are expected to follow the strict rules established by the parents. Failure to follow such rules usually results in punishment. Authoritarian parents fail to explain the reasoning behind these rules. If asked to explain, the parent might simply reply, "Because I said so." These parents have high demands, but are not responsive to their children. According to Baumrind, these parents "are obedience- and status-oriented, and expect their orders to be obeyed without explanation" (1991).
