I am taking a research course and we need to do some qualitative research. If you could come up with as many characteristics as possible I would appreciate it!
Thanks for helping!What are some characteristics of a good parent?
Good luck! I loved my research course.
A good parent is authoritative (as opposed to authoritarian) - they set guidelines for their children, yet allow enough latitude for the children to discover things on their own.
Consistency - the child absolutely knows what his/her boundaries are.
Communication - a good parent explains things to his children instead of simply saying ';because I said so.';
Openness - a good parent is open to allowing his children to have new experiences to expand their worlds
Unconditional love - a good parent can communicate to his children that he loves them no matter what. When the child disobeys or fails, the child needs to know that it is the action that the parent is displeased with, and not the child himself.
I hope this isn't too esoteric.What are some characteristics of a good parent?
