Baurmind (1991) highlighted that authoritarian parents tend to be demanding and directive but are not responsive enough to their children’s needs. They tend to exercise authority and control by demanding unquestioning obedience. They often fail to explain the reasoning for the rules. Thus, children might feel detached as the parents express little warmth, discourage verbal give-and-take and demand adherence to high standards. Miller (2010) conjectured that children who grow up under authoritarian parenting styles often experience long term emotional consequences.
In this part, I will examine Diana Baumrind 's parenting style. I want to explain mainly what the parenting style are. According to Baumrind and her colleagues, there are three parenting styles. These are authoritative, authoritarian, and permissive parenting styles. Baumrind focused on communication and interaction between parents and child.
New parents are hard to accept, especially when the child has been passed home to home. These attachment issues may restrict the child from moving forward in their lives and excelling in the new environment provided (Robin). The lack of stability in the system is only setting up the children up for failure, according to Stone, “we treated foster children as if they were our own, yet many of them never felt as if they were.” It is difficult for young children and adolescents to comprehend the separation of their parents let alone the process of moving to multiple foster homes while under the guardianship of the state. Other children mask their hesitation at being attached to a family by letting others see only what they want to see. The children are attached, but only on a “superficial level” (Robin).
Bowlby suspected that the earliest relationships formed by children and their primary parent or care giver, have huge impacts on the child’s later life. From this, Bowlby developed the attachment theory. The attachment theory referred to a
Independent variable in this study is attachment style, it including secure attachment style, fearful-avoidant attachment style, preoccupied attachment style and dismissing attachment style (Broderick, 1988). This independent variable is a variable that will influence marital satisfaction of married
During this observation I focused on how the parents responded to the boy’s problematic behavior, and I found that the parents put no real effort into controlling their son. He yelled, screamed, and was constantly arguing with his mother. She continued to beg her son to behave and of course he did not listen. While that was happening, the father was trying to control the daughter, who picked up on Child A’s behavior and began mimicking him in a similar fashion. It was difficult to watch the parents struggle, and it frustrated me that there was no discipline or punishment whatsoever; every one of the parents’ responses were passive.
As the Journal of Adolescence; Personality and parenting style in parents of adolescents by Rose M.E. Huver, Roy Otten, Hein de Vries, Rutger C.M.E. Engels reported there are mainly four distinct parenting styles called Authoritative, Authoritarian, Indulgent, Uninvolved. Parents mainly use strict/parental control (parental demandingness) or parental support (parental responsiveness). In Authoritative parents use both strict/parental control (parental demandingness) and parental support (parental responsiveness) in raising their adolescents.
There are many factors that influence a child’s development but what role does a parent play in the development of a child? What defines a parent? Are parents important in a child’s life or at least the figure of one? A parent is a person that is or acts as a mother or father to someone. Parents play a big role in a child’s life and contribute largely to the development of the children.
What they do not realize is how much this can affect the children’s brain, not only will they feel pressured or stressed but, also they may also go into depression when they fail to prove that they are winners. A child going into depression is not what a parent would want to see. Not only this, but majority of the parents force the kids to go for subjects or careers that they may not like or prefer. Being a parent we should understand our children instead of pushing them to win, we should give them the freedom to choose what they want to be in the future instead of saying do this and be that. Moreover, childhood is the only age we are able to enjoy and have fun doing activities so why are the parents taking away the golden age of children.
How was this attachment style born? Bowlby identified a clear and predictable sequence of three emotional reactions that typically occur subsequent to the separation of an infant from its primary caregiver as explained by Levy & Blatt (1999). First emotional reaction he identified is protest that involves crying, active searching, and resistance to others soothing efforts. Followed by despair and then detachment (Levy & Blatt 1999). Differences occur in the degree to which infant-mother relationships are characterized by experiences of security (Levy & Blatt 1999).
