family relationships

The life of each of its mem­bers depends on what kind of rela­tion­ships devel­op in the fam­i­ly. This is espe­cial­ly true for the younger gen­er­a­tion. After all, the mod­el of their future fam­i­ly hap­pi­ness is laid down with the first steps and is based on the exist­ing rela­tion­ship between moth­er and father, both rel­a­tive to each oth­er and to their chil­dren.

Types of family relationships

  1. Demo­c­ra­t­ic fam­i­ly rela­tions. In the world of par­ents who pre­fer some kind of free­dom with restric­tions, the child is, first of all, a friend. He is treat­ed as an equal. It is unlike­ly that you will hear: “No, you will do it because I said so.” There is equal­i­ty here. From an ear­ly age, the baby is treat­ed with respect. It is thanks to this that, hav­ing matured, he knows what it means to observe sub­or­di­na­tion, to be able to lis­ten to the inter­locu­tor with­out inter­rupt­ing him. Par­ents will­ing­ly give their child the free­dom of choice, just do not think that if a teenag­er said that he wants to start smok­ing, because his friends do it, moth­er and father will approve of this with plea­sure. No, they always exer­cise covert con­trol. The method of sharp fail­ures, teach­ings is dis­card­ed. They com­mu­ni­cate with him as with an adult, explain­ing what harm he can do to his health with such an addic­tion. It should be not­ed that rela­tion­ships in such a fam­i­ly pre­pare chil­dren for the con­di­tions of real life.
  2. Author­i­tar­i­an­ism. It is pos­si­ble that in such a fam­i­ly nest there is a sin­gle par­ent who, not only faced severe life dif­fi­cul­ties, but also per­forms the func­tions of both father and moth­er. Or both par­ents are peo­ple of pro­fes­sions that require con­sid­er­able dis­ci­pline from them. So, there can be no talk of any har­mo­nious rela­tions in such a fam­i­ly. The kid obeys, and they order. If he tries to com­plain about some­thing, he will regret it in a moment. Here it is believed that the whip method is the most effec­tive. It is dif­fi­cult for chil­dren to imag­ine what a heart-to-heart talk is.
  3. “Anar­chy is the moth­er of order”. Some­times inter­per­son­al rela­tions in this fam­i­ly are called demo­c­ra­t­ic, but it is more appro­pri­ate to call them pseu­do-demo­c­ra­t­ic. Per­mis­sive­ness is the main thing that reigns in a home­ly atmos­phere. As a result, chil­dren grow up self­ish, inca­pable of empa­thy.
