ESFPs are very fun-loving parents. They are constantly looking for fun and exciting activities to do with their children. They encourage their children to try new things, and understand that their children must step outside of their comfort zone for learning to happen. When their children try and fail, ESFP parents are always there to help pick their child back up, encouraging them to try again.
ESFPs certainly do have rules, but may have a hard time enforcing them. ESFP parents do not like feeling as if they are strict authoritarians. In addition, ESFPs do not like conflict and are especially hurt when their children are disrespectful. It is important for ESFP parents to remind themselves that sometimes you need to enforce the rules – the rules are there to help and protect your child!
