The long running show of the “Cosby Show” with character parents, Bill and Clair Huxtable would possess the parenting style in my opinion would be the “Authoritative Style”. Both parents created a positive and happy atmosphere,exemplifying autonomy,supporting assertiveness and individuality.
Both parents had 4 children with totally different personalities. These parents allowed when a conflict would surface, each child to fully express their emotions about their problem, inquired how that child or teenager felt about their problem and then they uniquely partnered with their child about ways in which to solve a problem. Almost like a social worker would with a client. These role model parents gave their child the proper socialization skills in which to help them to develop into mature individuals while giving while still providing parent demands and yet giving the right amount of affection to each child.
