Counselor’s Corner

A note from Mrs. Barnes…

What kind of parent are you?  Are you a “consultant”, “helicopter” or “drill sergeant”?  Today, I’d like to share how each of these parenting styles handle children and their responsibilities:

The consultant:  The Love and Logic parent very seldom mentions responsibilities.  The expectation once the child knows what to do is that he/she will complete tasks on their own.  If they choose not to do their assigned tasks, the parent will do something about it.

The helicopter: This parent makes excuses for the child, but complains about mishandled responsibilities.

The drill sergeant: This parent makes a lot of demands and has lots of expectations about responsibility.
