Box Parenting

Are you a Box Style Parent? (Authoritarian Parenting)

Box Style Parents are often thought of as disciplinarians.

  • They use a strict discipline style with little negotiation possible. (Box Sides)
  • Punishment is common. (Box closed)
  • Communication is mostly one way: from parent to child. Rules usually are not explained. 
  • Parents with this style are typically less nurturing. 
  • Expectations are high with limited flexibility. 

This is one end of the parenting spectrum.

The question isn’t “Is this good or bad?”

The questions are:

Is this working for you and your family?

Is this the style you feel comfortable using?

Is this bringing your family together?
