ENTP parents are likely to be relaxed, unorthodox and enthusiastic. They dislike being constrained by rules and consequently are very unlikely to try to create a structured, heavily regulated environment for their children – quite the contrary, the ENTP will probably encourage them to think independently and voice their opinions in the family environment.
ENTP personalities do not really understand or appreciate feelings and emotions – they will do their best to teach their children the importance of staying impartial and prioritizing logical, rational arguments. However, this also means that ENTPs will have difficulties responding to their children’s emotional needs and may have to rely on their partner’s help in such situations.
Parenthood is likely to have a profound effect on the ENTP, forcing them to pay more attention to the weaknesses inherent to their personality type, e.g. unnecessary risk-taking. Despite the fact that ENTPs often jump from one project or idea to another, they take their parental role very seriously, hoping to see their children grow up as smart, independent and honest individuals.
