You're the perfectionist parent. You believe in order and the rule of law. You're the Mom who knows what she wants and creates her own set of rules. You're not a big fan of mess or clutter, which is why your house is always pristine, even with toddlers around. You instill a strong sense of boundaries in your kids early on, which is why they always feel secure and know where they stand. When your kids graduate, they'll have killer life skills because of your strong sense of responsibility.
Type 1: The Perfectionist
You're the helper parent. Kind and compassionate, you were born to help your child to feel loved and nurtured. Your the parent who will gladly listen to endless hours of stories about Pokemon or that leaf your child found on a walk. In fact, you'll always put chores aside for a little one on one time with your kids. Empathetic and warm, your kids feel as if they can always confide in you and feel heard. You make your children feel truly loved.
Type 2: The Helper
You're the achiever parent! Okay, you're a bit of a tiger mom. When you look in the mirror, you see someone who is a true winner, capable of doing anything. You want your kids to feel the same way. You'll do anything to make sure your kids succeed, not just in one subject or area, but at life itself. You're always down to hire tutors, enroll them in music lessons, or to give them the opportunities to excel. With an emphasis on practicality and organization, your kids are truly set up for success.
Type 3: The Achiever
You're the individualist parent! A true softy, you feel all the feels. You always prefer one-on-one time with your kids to play dates or mommy and me get together. Most days, you love to just sit with your kid to finger paint some abstracts while messily enjoying a PB&J. You love to share the thing you are passionate about with your children; whether that's your favorite band or even the best way to scoop ice cream. With a strong sense of intuition, you can always seem to sense exactly what your little ones need.
Type 4: The Individualist
You're the peacemaker parent! In general, you're the parent most kids wish they could have. You approach parenting with a very laid back attitude and sense of humor. You solve problems creatively and without ever losing your cool. You take a genuine interest in your kids lives and the things that bring them joy. Unlike some parents, you haven't lost touch with how it felt to be young, which is why you always have compassion for the many unique issues your kids face everyday.
