Beliefnet Quiz

The Discipline Style Quiz

You scored 33, on a scale of 0 to 60. Here's how to interpret your score:
0 - 20
Permissive. You are lenient, responsive, and conflict-averse. Your child may gain high self-esteem and creativity. But with so little adult direction, he or she may become a holy terror, self-centered and undisciplined. Learn more about giving moral guidance.
21 - 35
Moderate. You're responsive AND authoritative. Your discipline methods are supportive rather than punitive. You listen, but have expectations for good behavior. Your kids tend to be responsible and to think for themselves. Learn more spiritual parenting tips.
36 - 50
Tough Cookie. You are highly directive and have clear rules for your child's behavior. Punishment is swift, discussion rare. Your need for control may mean your child obeys out of fear and may not learn negotiating skills. View these tips for gentle discipline.

I'm a bit surprised to find out just how moderate I am.

I scored a 30, although many of the things I do are influenced by how you do them. They aren't my natural reactions and there was no measure on the scale for the parent that gets frustrated, pulls out his remaining hair and pleads to the gods for assistance.

I scored a 30. Seems about right.

oh dear...I am not even going to SAY my score! LOL!

I scored 33 too. That seems right for me.

I scored a 30. And I'm with Sammy, this is more a measure of how you want to react than of how you actually react.

Stac Cole said...

I scored a 36. And I don't believe I'm that way AT ALL.

I got a 27. Based on what I read about your parenting in you blog, I am not at all surprised that you fall right in the middle (but leaning a little towart the disciplinarian side).
