I think the reason why, at least for me, that I am more submissive is I was treated very badly as a child by my parents, and abused, criticized, etc.  My mom was very controlling, and my dad ruled with physical threats or spanked with a belt many times.   I don't remember anything of what I did, there was no lesson learned except that they are in charge, and I had absolutely no say in any matter, and (very long story) I have had to go to counseling and therapy for years to recover from both of their toxic parenting.  So sometimes in an effort to make sure I am not being an abusive parent, I go a little to the other side and be a little more tolerant and leniant, however, I have had to adjust my parenting style because I notice that my child tends to take advantage of my tolerant and flexible nature as a teenager. So I have learned to be more assertive and not take attitude right away and it is working.  Being a parent is a learning process.
