Welcome to the new Family Hope House blog! Blog articles are written, for you, by our staff and will be posted regularly. We will be walking you through parenting topics that you’ve told us YOU want to hear about! This month we will be focusing on the four caregiving styles: authoritarian, authoritative, permissive and neglectful. These have been around since the 60’s, but we hope to bring new life and awareness to them and how they impact your daily life. They are likely terms you’ve heard before, they were terms we were all familiar with as well. When at TCU for TBRI training, the TBRI team blew us away with their application of these styles. It was both humbling and motivating. As a parent, being mindful of myself and where I fall on this continuum has improved and strengthened my parenting skills and relationship with my children. So, stay tuned! Keep your eyes on our Facebook page where we will post quick pieces of information, links and more for you to further expand your knowledge of these parenting styles. We will do a few Live posts talking about them, too.
