An article published on the Center for Parent Teen Communication website helps parents to understand the four main parenting styles. The article highlights how the different styles differ in how parents show love and warmth and balance setting rules and monitoring their teens behaviors. Teen perspectives on why they might seek guidance from a parent with one style or avoid attempts at engagement by parents who use an alternative style help shed light on what teens are thinking when we approach them. In a video that accompanies the article, Ken Ginsburg shares his perspective on how parents can choose to be the parent they (and their teen) want and need them to be.
