Kate Middleton’s ‘authoritative’ parenting style is better than Princess Charlene’s
The British Princess, Kate Middleton, and the Prince of Monaco, Charlene, have methodologies for raising their children.
Jasmine Peters, a parenting expert, tells Express.co.uk the difference between the parenting styles of the two Royals.
She reveals: “Princess Charlene gave a little hint about her permissive parenting style when she spoke to French magazine ‘Point de Vue’ about her twins’ upbringing in November 2019.
“As a permissive parent, children are allowed and encouraged to discuss things openly with their parents. Permissive parenting engages a less formal style than one would expect of a royal family.”
Ms Peters continued: “On the positive side, this is seen as a more modern parenting style with few rules and expectations for children. Children are openly loving and caring with their children.
Kate Middleton and Prince William, on the contrary, are more “authoritarian”.
Ms Peters explained: “In essence, the permissive parenting style is likely to become more authoritarian, such as that adopted by the Prince and Princess of Wales in order to maintain a degree of royal property and privacy.”
“Permissive parents rarely discipline their children and avoid the unpleasantness of confrontation whenever possible. Instead of rules and expectations, they choose to let children figure things out for themselves.”
