Old School Parenting Is Not Necessarily”Bad” or “Wrong.”
But It’s Often Ineffective
The Old School model of parenting is not, in and of itself, bad or wrong in terms of how to be a parent. Ninety-nine percent of us were probably raised within that model, and we turned out just fine, thank you!
By the “Old School parenting model” I mean the model that has been around for eons, probably as long as human parenting itself. It consists of a set of time-honored, tried and true principles that include the following: 1) rules; 2) obedience; and 3) punishments.
Old School = Parental Decree –> Rules –> Obedience –> Punishments
