Tough Love

Queendom’s study of 1,234 parents who took their Parenting Style Test reveals that healthy parent-child relationships and well-adjusted children require a different view of “tough love.”

“Authoritative parents are able to create a balance. They don’t over-compensate, like Permissive parents, and unlike Authoritarian parents, they can be strict without being harsh,” explains Dr. Ilona Jerabek, president of PsychTests. “These two traits cannot be separated. Responsiveness and firmness need to both be present in order to create a healthy environment for a child to grow up in – and the data show this.”
We all know what kind of parents control-freak abusers are.

And I doubt abusers would even be honest during such tests.
