Parenting styles come in more varieties than Baskin-Robbins’ ice cream. Some parents rule their nest with an iron fist so heavy you might mistake their house for a kiddie boot camp, while others prefer the freestyle approach, letting kids take the reins and choose everything from whether they go to school to eating Jell-O for dinner. And then there’s the other 40 million ways in-between.
