What type of parent are you?

I was watching wife swap the other night with Kate and Kendra and it got me thinking. I'm more like Kendra, super laid back. I think my child should enjoy her childhood. I obviously don't have someone else raise her, but you get the point. 


What's your parenting style? Laid back, authoritative, or a mixture of both?

I am more authoritative. I am type A personality and I like to be in control and have everything go my way. Dh is the super laid back parent and sometimes it drives me nuts.

I use to be super laid back, but now that she's getting older I've become a combo of both.

I plan to raise my child like my mom did. If I was good and got good grades I could do whatever the heck I wanted. I was bad or got bad grades my life was over lol

I was thinking as she got older it might be hard to be as lax about things.
