What type parent are you?

Foster Cline and Jim Fay list 3 types of parents. The consultant, the helicopter and the drill Sargent. I think I am a bizarre combination of the 3. My husband tends to be the drill Sargent. None of us are perfect parents. We can only read, pray and learn. Then try to do what we deem best for our own household with our own children. I do think this is a great article and something each of us needs to consider. So what type parent are you?

PS. I have an appointment at one to go in and fix my son's schedule with the principal even though it is past the time you are allowed to do this. Read : Helicopter Parent.

I work really hard at being the consultant and most of the times I succeed. However, there are days in which my mood and J's mean I become the drill sargent. *hanging head in shame*
Thankfully the helicopter parent has pretty much left the building.
This CD from L&L is one of my most prized possessions!

I always see myself in all three types. Does this make me a narcisicistic?
