Barbara Coloroso writes there are three types of parenting styles. I’m pretty sure that she’s mostly right since she also says that as parents, we often have bits of different styles in our own parenting.
What I’m concerned about though is not particular parenting styles but what kinds of things work with emotionally intense children as opposed to “normal” children.
While there is no value in “cookie cutter parenting” – The same consequence for every child for every action, in my experience, and it is only my experience is that what worked very well for my “normal” child hardly ever worked for my Intense child and those are the kinds of things I intend to explore on this page and in my blog.
