I used an authoritative parenting style with my children and now my grandson. Psychologists know this is the most effective parenting style. I had to learn how to parent from books, conferences, workshops, parenting groups, ect. because all I had seen was authoritarian parenting. My oldest son was born in 1979 and the book that shaped my parenting was Without Spanking or Spoiling by Elizabeth Crary. She has written many books and has a web site called star parenting. Her book Love & Limits is a great first parenting book.
