Example Paragraph

     The parenting style used in my home would be authoritarian. This is becuase my mother is very strict.  For example, two days ago my science teacher, Ms. Dooher, called my house to tell my mother that I was texting in class.  I was grounded for a week and my phone was shut down for a month.  She didn't even attempt to talk it out.  Although my mother uses an authoritative parenting style, I know deep down she loves me just the same.
