QUIZ: What kind of parent are you?

07:56 PM September 18, 2017

When it comes to raising a child, every parent differs in style. For some, “spoonfeeding” their kids is the best way to bring them up. While for others, it’s all about giving them tough love. And these varying parenting styles determine the kind of people our children turn into — whether it’s for the better or for the worse. This consequently emphasizes the importance of finding out how your parenting style works for them.

However, you won’t be able to fully know the extent of your methods if you do not know the kind of parent you are first. Luckily, you won’t have to go through a long and arduous test to find that out…because we’ve got a simpler process for you!

Just answer the five questions below and uncover the truth behind your parenting style. The results may surprise you!

a. Reprimand him or her and give an appropriate form of punishment.
b. Give the cash to the child because they must’ve taken it for good reason.
c. Let him or her have the cash. The kid was smart enough to know where you kept your money anyways!
d. Blame the child’s yaya or guardian since they were the ones watching the kid.
