Module 5 Discussion: Parenting Styles

DISCUSSION: In this discussion, reflect upon and discuss the following question:

  • Q1: What parenting style did your parents or caregivers use? Did it change over time? Was it different depending on the child? Would you choose to parent in the same style that your parents or caregivers did? Why or why not?

STEP 1: First, write a response with at least EIGHT substantial sentences, integrating concepts you learned from the reading and other materials (include links with necessary). Show that you can think critically on the topic by integrating your own thoughts, analysis, or experiences.

STEP 2: Return to the discussion to comment on at least TWO classmates’ posts (in at least FIVE sentences). Expand on a classmate’s comments in a value-adding, topic-related way. Promote a collaborative, supportive community, and advance the dialogue through follow-up questions. Reply posts cannot be one-liners, off-topic posts, vague statements, unsupported opinions, inadequate explanations or simply say, “I agree” or “good job.”
