According to the Process of Parenting by Jane Brooks (2013) permissive parenting is the final type of parenting style that exists and is defined as:
“Permissive parents set few limits on the child. They accepted the child’s impulses, granting as much freedom as possible while still maintaining safety.” (Brooks, 2013, 102)
These types of parents often seemed as though they were not involved and relaxed but in reality were mostly afraid to voice their concerns which led to future problems.
Gwen Dewar also writes about permissive parenting in the following article “Permissive Parenting: An Evidence Based Guide.”
