Parenting styles to avoid

Parents want their children to grow up happy, healthy and perfect. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, unless it means putting unfair expectations on children or not holding them accountable for their actions. And while all parents try their best to make sure their children have good childhoods, aren't overindulged and have appropriate amounts of discipline and rewards no one is perfect. Parents will make mistakes (I know, I have) and they'll learn how to be better as time goes by. (Ever notice how differently parents tend to raise youngest children as opposed to oldest children ...
