parenting style quadrants Baumrind
These quadrants align perfectly with the etheric head quadrants.

In this scheme, only the King Arthur quadrant has a healthy parenting styles. The other three quadrants all point to dysfunctional expressions.

In top right Tiger Mom is dysfunctional OVERcharge (Warrior Mom).

In lower left Parent as Friend is Merlin in normal or UNDERcharge.

In lower right, this is Guinever DISsociated, overly withdrawn, over-mystical, NOT grounded. One place we see this quadrant expressed in the tragedy of drug addict moms.
