I’ve been thinking a lot about my relationship with parenting styles lately.
I’ve never been a huge fan of the term ‘parenting style’ itself, so I’m often accused of treating my children as though they’re all on a single level.
The problem is that it’s a broad term and many people have different styles and it’s easy to confuse them.
I’ve also been thinking about how my approach to parenting has changed over the years.

The thing is I’m responsible for all the decisions that my kids make.
I think I make my children happy because I’m in charge of them.
I need them to do the things that I expect them to.
As a result, I don
