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
- 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.
- 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.
- “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.
