For your reference, the four most recognized and general parenting styles are:
Authoritarian Parenting-In this style of parenting, children are expected to follow the strict rules established by the parents These parents have high demands, but are not responsive to their children. These parents are obedience- and status-oriented, and expect their orders to be obeyed without explanation.
Authoritative Parenting-Authoritative parents are responsive to their children and willing to listen to questions. When children fail to meet the expectations, these parents are more nurturing and forgiving rather than punishing. They are assertive, but not intrusive and restrictive. Their disciplinary methods are supportive, rather than punitive.
Permissive Parenting-Permissive parents are more responsive than they are demanding. They are nontraditional and lenient, do not require mature behavior, allow considerable self-regulation, and avoid confrontation. Permissive parents are generally nurturing and communicative with their children, often taking on the status of a friend more than that of a parent.
Neglectful Parenting-An neglectful parenting style is characterized by few demands, low responsiveness and little communication. While these parents fulfill the child's basic needs, they are generally detached from their child's life.
