Plate Parenting

Are you a Plate Style Parent? (Uninvolved Parenting)

Plate Style Parents give children a lot of freedom and generally stay out of their way. Some parents may make a conscious decision to parent in this way, while others are less interested in parenting or unsure of what to do.

  • No particular discipline style is utilized. An uninvolved parent lets a child mostly do what he wants, probably out of a lack of information or caring.
  • Communication is limited.
  • This group of parents offers little nurturing.
  • There are few or no expectations of children.

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?
