  •  Nurturing is NOT coddling (none)
    Like the strict father, a nurturing parent also makes sure their child is well prepared to take care of themselves. Nurturing isn't coddling, which leaves an individual inept and dependant. Nurturing is helping one grow and fulfill their potential. It is providing an environment which will support, teach, and even challenge, so that the individual has the tools and temperment to succeed.

    I think the main difference is that the nurturer teaches their child that we are all responsible for creating a better society, while the strict father teaches the child that all they have to do is look out for himself/herself.
