Kids raised with strict discipline learn that power is always right. But I know growing up with strict parents amplified that character trait of mine. He lacks life skills and self-confidence, and is struggling in school because he doesn't really have rules and curfews. In other words, it isn't good for either parents or kids, even if it isn't as bad as authoritarian or permissive. Instead, I call this parenting style Empathic Limits to get across the point that we do set limits, just like the Authoritarian strict parents, but we do it with empathy, just like the Permissive parents.
If you use force, they'll use force. We used the standards our parents applied to us without taking the time to think about why we didn't follow them. My mum´s only 32, and when she´s not asking, if there´s a boy I love ore something like this, she´s also a lovely and nice person. My sister would get to see bad movies, go to the store alone, stay out late, etc. They always try to be supportive but it often becomes clear that they are still figuring out what to do themselves.
My boyfriend, myself, and his parents are all the oldest children of our families. Sometimes it shows up in rebellion against the limits we impose on ourselves. You're far too young to have bad stuff to happen to you, just deal with it and once you're on your own then party like a rockstar. But I disagree with completely getting away, but sometimes I do feel like saying They're your kids! But if you're worked up enough to post about it, it could be your mind trying to wrap its head around a bigger problem. All parents can get a little angry, but this doesn't mean they hate you. Come up with solutions together to ensure this fight doesn't happen again. So does Permissive parenting work? What are you going to do with your life? To see why, simply consider how this works for most adults.
Authoritarian Parenting undermines the parent-child relationship. And even then, they still need to talk with them on the phone for 20 minutes to make sure they have an itinerary of the night's events. I recommend you to keep trying talking to them and explaining things from your angle. Be honest, open, and specific, using stories from the past to show them that this isn't just in your imagination. Authoritarian parenting -- limits without empathy -- is based on fear. Finally, Andrea gathered the strength to confront her parents and talk to them about how she was feeling, but her parents didn't listen, in fact, being honest with them seemed to make everything worse. If you lash out at your parents every time they seem angry you'll just develop a pattern of meanness.
What can we do to change things for the better? If you have solid, real goals to work on it will be much easier to see real progress -- and point out if your parents are not following through on their promises. No one likes to be controlled, so it's not surprising that kids reject limits that aren't empathic. Virtually all of us were raised with some degree of harshness, and we chafe at control to that degree -- even when we're the ones imposing it! Do we see eye to eye on everything? Later in life, they won't question authority when they should. I hated kids when I was younger and I never got along with people my own age.

Same thing happened to me -- I was 16 with a 9 pm curfew; little sister has no curfew at 15. More likely than not, you are not the only reason why your parents are acting mean. So basically, in that sense the first born will always have it more rough in that sense.
Stay calm and , even when they are mean. In hindsight, it kept me out of trouble. This is especially true if you can show your parents how what they are saying connects to the bigger picture. My parents made it no secret that I was the guinea pig. What do you like about your parents? Self-discipline is really hard sometimes, and it's a skill that takes lots of practice.
