Would this example be representative
of a democratic parenting style?

A mother's eventual submission to her young child's repeated requests for the toy matchbox in the hobby shop.

    I don't think so. This isn't democratic -- it's the parent giving in to a choice that she obviously didn't want to do.

    A better example of democratic parenting is to give a young child simple choices, such as wearing his red or blue shirt today. Another example -- when the mother doesn't care which the child chooses would be to ask whether the child wanted green beans or peas with his dinner.

    With older children, the parent might present two or three reasonable choices for a vacation and let the family decide by vote.

    Which parenting style would it be?

    a Victorian,democratic,authorian,or laissez faire parenting style?

  • Early Child Ed. -

    I'd call it laissez-faire parenting. That means letting anything happen.
