In brief: Active parenting

This style teaches you to give your child freedom with limits.
The limits expand as the child shows more responsibility. Check out dr. Michael popkin's program at www.Activeparenting.Com. I used to teach the class to parents and found to be the best.

In brief: Baumrind's long-term

studies on parenting styles show that Authoritative Parenting, in which both control & responsiveness are high, is most likely to yield competent, confident adults.
Clear rules & consequences, two-way conversations & sensitivity to the child's needs are characteristic. Authoritarian style has high control but low responsiveness (think military). Democratic style, low control, high responsiveness.
