A Guide on Parenting
The word parenting is widely used by most of us but only few of us actually understand it. Parenting is one of the biggest responsibilities that life brings to you. You can call parenting a process that prepares your child for life. Most of us find problems at some or the other when it comes to nurturing them.
What is good parenting?
A good parenting is characterised by consistency and routine in its first place. Matching up with their expectations and needs while keeping them disciplined and controlled is all what good parenting can be called. Good parenting, in general, accounts the following points:
- Building resilience
What is parenting counseling?
Parenting counseling is a valuable and important service offering you rational, emotional, unbiased guidance and help where you need to meet up the expectations of your children and family as a whole.
Once your child has crossed a certain age where you have guided them with walking, talking and eating, you further move on to teach them life lessons. Some of them might include:
- Holding up a conversation
- Dealing with challenges
- Solving conflicts
- Making decisions
For all these to turn up with best outcomes, people go for parenting counseling. Because taking care of the child is not the only aspect one focuses on a particular point of time.
Types of Parenting Style
No children come with manuals, making it difficult for parents to handle and raise them. While some are lenient as parents, others are strict. There are a few of the parenting styles one can go for, namely, permissive, authoritative, neglectful, and authoritarian. Each of these styles has different impacts on a child’s behaviour and development in terms of responsiveness and demandingness let’s dive into these four one by one:
This style of parenting is more towards being friends than just parenting seriously with set rules. Such parenting focuses more on avoiding conflicts and often bows to their children’s pleas at the first sign of distress. Parents into this parenting style usually allow their children to do what they want and pose limited or little direction and guidance.
Some of the common traits of permissive counseling includes:
- Low demandingness
- High responsiveness
- Open communications
- Less direction giving
- No rules and expectations enforcing
- Allowing kids decide on their own
Authoritative parents are said to be nurturing, supportive and often in tune with their children’s needs. They practice open and honest discussions to guide their children to teach values and reasoning. Kids having authoritative parents tend to be more self-disciplined and can think for themselves.
Some of the common traits of authoritative parenting are:
- High demandingness
- High responsiveness
- Setting clear rules, regulations and expectations
- Communicating frequently with kids
- Considering children’s thoughts
- Giving space for natural consequences.
Also referred to as uninvolved parenting, this style of parenting is characterized by an overall feeling of indifference. The parents are hardly engaged with children, and rules implementations are rare in such cases. Parents following this style are careless and cold towards their kids, intentionally or unintentionally.
The common traits of neglectful parenting are:
- Low responsiveness
- Low demandingness
- Offering little guidance and attention
- Struggling with one’s own needs and relationships
- Letting kids fend for themselves
- Being indifferent to kid’s needs and expectations
This comes under a very rigid and stiff parenting style. Parents use stern discipline which they name as “ tough love”. Such parents don’t consider their children’s input or feedback while talking.
The traits of authoritarian parenting are as follows:
- High demandingness
- Low responsiveness
- Enforcing strict rules
- Hardly considering kid’s feelings and emotions
- Imposing unnecessary rules without any justifications
- Practicing one-way communication.
Biggest Parenting Mistakes
Parents are in a position of authority and trust. They should be setting good examples for their children, not making parenting mistakes that could harm them later on down the road. Here is my list of parenting guidance for their children:
- Not trying to fix problems
- Not following through if your kids do something wrong
- Spilling secrets
- Not supporting their dreams
- Never taking your kids seriously or listening
- Never giving them consequences
- Not teaching the difference between right and wrong
- Not teaching them to be social
- Teaching kids there is no such thing as “fair”
- Not disciplining kids
- Not setting rules and limits.

The recipe for good parenting is not just one thing but a combination of lots of things all working together. Good parents will take the time to look at their own lives too as they’ll know that good parenting starts with themselves.

Online parenting therapy has been proven to have the same effectiveness as in-person therapy. There are multiple reasons why online counselling proves to be better:
No need to travel to a psychologist, sit on the same couch, and talk with the same therapist. Online parenting therapy doesn’t require that you leave the comforts of your home or office. Talk to your therapist in your pajamas, sitting on your bed!
