Canadian Parents Trends – Where is your parenting style coming from?

There are many new trends in parenting styles, Helicopter parenting, Attachment parenting, Tiger parenting so which one to adopt? Are you following only the trends that your friends do? Is it time for Canadian parents to do more research, and know how to strike a balance in all these extreme parenting styles.

Canadian parents are not very eager to learn about parents advice from the industry experts, so are these so called expert books, blogs and reports not really helping parents?

In a recent Heritage Education Funds survey, it was concluded that 75 percent of parents go to friends or family for parenting tips. Only 12 percent of respondent said they read parenting books, 10 percent read parenting magazines and only 3 percent would attend parenting class to learn more about parenting.
