Parenting Styles and Gifted Teacher Characteristics: What Works?
Understanding Our Gifted, v18 n1 p13-17 Fall 2005
Parents generally want the best for their children. They want their young children to feel supported while being challenged and encouraged and led toward independence. Parenting that is most supportive of a child's development and adjustment to the outside world is characterized by consistent enforcement of standards for behavior, concern for emotional and physical well-being, and encouragement of self-reliant behaviors. Parents of gifted children share some of the same basic needs as parents of non-gifted children. They wonder what type of parenting best supports their child's development. Because their child spends so much time in school, they wonder if there is a connection between positive parenting behaviors and quality teacher characteristics. This article discusses the different parenting styles and their outcomes in children and adolescents and also the different teaching styles and their similarities to parenting styles.
