Navigating Different Parenting Styles to Work with All Families

Member Rate: $49
Nonmember Rate: $199

Click here to purchase this on-demand webinar

Most parents of college students are eager to receive the messages colleges and universities provide to help them support their son’s or daughter’s college experience. The majority of families buy into the concept that their son or daughter should be developing independence and resilience during college. The parents' role, then, becomes serving as a sounding board, providing advice, and increasingly turning over responsibility to the student—while still being in the background as a safety net for the worst-case scenarios.

But there are resistant parents who believe the school's job is to protect their child no matter what, and another (generally smaller) group of parents who believe they’re done parenting their student and who will not be there in those worst-case situations. 

Differences in parenting styles can influence these family approaches to “appropriate
involvement” and affect how parents interpret information provided by professionals. This session will report findings of a study that examined how parenting style relates to parent involvement in college. Participants will consider how professionals in higher education might adapt to different parenting styles to provide information and support families by adjusting communications, events, and services in order to address needs of parents we’re not currently reaching.

This webinar will help professionals:

  • Begin to understand how parenting style impacts parents’ feelings about higher education and their concerns regarding their college student.
  • Move our focus beyond commonly-researched demographic factors.
  • Challenge our own biases regarding right and wrong ways for parents to interact with their students
  • Acknowledge differences in parenting style and understand that appropriate involvement may look different in different families.
  • Learn how to reach out to different types of parents and ensure that all students receive support from home.
  • Explore ways to develop communication strategies to fit all parenting styles.
