There are four separate parenting styles which are utilized by parents raising children. They are authoritative, authoritarian, permissive-indulgent, and rejecting-neglecting. The authoritative style is a child-rearing style where parents are restrictive and demanding, yet communicative and warm. Authoritarian is a child-rearing style in which parents demand submission and obedience from the child. Permissive-indulgent is a child-rearing style where the parents are warm and not restrictive. The rejecting-neglecting style is a child-rearing style in which parents are neither restrictive and controlling nor supportive and responsive. The authoritative parents raise the most capable children. Authoritarian parents are cold and rejecting. Permissive-Indulgent parents are easygoing and unconventional. Rejecting-Neglecting are low in support and responsiveness and raise children with
This style is the most “harmful” style of the four. These parents do not care for their children needs. The parent figure in this style of parenting does not care to know what’s going on with their child. Children are damage to the point where it’s hard for them to form relationships because of their lack of trust. Another, possible damaging, parenting style is the permissive style. The parents are responsive but not demanding (Sailor, 2010). They expect their children to think for themselves. A permissive parent tries to avoid confrontation and is lenient with their children. Children raised by permissive parents are raised with no self-discipline or control (Hughes,
In The Glass Castle, Rex and Rosemary Walls mostly show the traits of having a permissive parenting style. Throughout the novel, Rex and Rosemary are very lenient with their children only disciplining them when they talk back, as described in the article permissive parents,” rarely discipline their children…” (Cherry, The four styles of parenting). This is proven by a quote from the book,” They’d stick their heads into her classroom and see the students playing tag and throwing erasers…” (74). Rosemary was unable to discipline not only her own kids but an entire classroom full of kids, which shows that she was definitely lenient with children and preferred to let them do their own things. Another example of the permissive parenting style shown
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. How so? Each parent has his or her own methodology as to how they would raise their child, this is called parenting style. A developmental psychologist Diana Baurmrind studied parenting styles during the early 1960s. The four parenting styles she developed was based on the actions and behaviors of parents and how they affect child development, paying close attention to four important areas involving a parents ' warmth or nurturance, discipline strategy, communication skills, and expectations of maturity. However, there are many different theories and opinions on the best way to raise a child as well as the amount of investments of time and effort a parent is willing to give to their child or children. This concept is broken up into four categories known as the four types of Parenting Styles; they are the Authoritarian, Authoritative, Permissive and Uninvolved Parenting.
There are many factors that affect the academic performance of children and parenting styles is one of the significant factors of academic performance. But there is lack of research that integrates and systemizes the relationship between parenting styles and academic performance especially in Pakistan. The unit of analysis of this research was studies that were previously conducted on parenting styles and academic performance of young children. Main focus of search was to availability of data that is most recent and relevant, so this research paper focuses on 39 studies. Articles from seven databases (Google Scholar, Science Direct, Taylor and Francis Journals, Web of Science, JSTOR, Springer link and SAGE Journals) were identified related to the topic using a pre-established set of terms that included both parenting styles and academic performance. All the studies highlighted that parenting styles affect the academic achievement of adolescents. It was analyzed that authoritative parenting style is the most effective parenting style in enhancing the academic performance of young children. More research is needed on parenting styles in different continents to have an understanding of the cultural effect of parenting styles on the academic performance of adolescents. The interest in good parenting, parenting styles and general child care is actually a relatively new
Parents want their children to be successful in their life, therefore, they do their best to bring them up well. Children are very innocent, they count on their parents to show them the right direction and its parent’s job if they raise them overprotected or teach them to live independently. Raising children is challenging for parents, and they have their own ways to raise them. However, there is a huge difference between overprotected and independent children in regard to their abilities, behavior and accomplishments.
Every way that a parent goes about raising their child will have a unique result. Written by Bianca Mgbemere and Rachel Telles, “Types of Parenting Styles and How to Identify Yours” is an article outlining different approaches to parenting and the outcomes each of these approaches has. Each of these major parenting styles are classified by the “different reactions” that the “children which they are used on” harbor (Telles & Mgbemere 1). Telles and Mgbemere expand on four types of parenting styles: neglectful, permissive, authoritative, and authoritarian. Estep, Hanna, et al. utilize these same parenting styles in their study outlined in the report “THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PARENTING STYLES, GENERAL DEVIANCE, ACADEMIC DISHONESTY, AND INFIDELITY”. The different approaches are simply classified by a scale of warmth and strictness. Low warmth and low strictness is the neglectful style, high warmth and low strictness is permissive parenting, the authoritative style categorizes itself with high warmth and high strictness, low warmth and high strictness is authoritarian (Estep, Hanna, et al.
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. Authoritarian parenting style; parents who have an authoritarian parenting style set strict rules for their children and rules are important for these parents. These families have a weak communication with their children. This communication based on discipline. Children have to

Levitt and Dubner classify Freakonomics as a book having “no such unifying theme” (14), but all the unique topics discussed throughout the text connect back together in order to show the hidden side of human nature. The argument that the wide variety of topics and their abstract descriptions all link together draws the attention of a large audience and connects to issues that society is currently facing or has recently confronted.
Authoritative parenting is the parenting style that my parents used when I was growing up. Growing up with this parenting style I have become independent and self reliant. Some characteristics of authoritative parents include: listening to their child, letting their child express their opinion, encouraging their children, giving them fair and reasonable consequences, giving their child the opportunity to express their reasoning, having expectations for their children, and most of all showing warmth and nurture to their child.
-Dominating/Authoritarian: This is a parent who is a strong believer in rules and provides high expectation for a child’s behavior. These caregivers seldom show affection toward their children. They are harsh when correcting bad behaviors. Kids have low self-esteem.
Parenting is one of the most complicated, time-consuming full-time jobs in the world. According to Martin Davies, “Parenting or child rearing is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, financial, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood,” and although it is complicated and time consuming, there are only a few ways that parenting can be classified. Two of these parenting techniques are the authoritarian and permissive parenting styles. Both styles can be slightly effective, but neither are a better way to raise a child.
Parenting is one of the most challenging and difficult responsibilities a person can confront. The way a family is structured is called the parenting style. Parenting styles are collections of parental attitudes, practices, and non-verbal expressions that qualify the nature of parent-child relationships. Because people learn how to parent from many different examples, including their own parents, character models, society and life experiences. Parenting techniques can change greatly from household to household, however, experts think that parenting styles can be worn down into four primary classes which include permissive, authoritarian, authoritative, and inattentive. Spanking has been a variety of punishment applied by many parents for years.
Instantly, several parents are struggling to find a way to raise their children effectively. Permissive parenting is one of their choices. Being permissive is treating children with plenty of love, caring and nurturing but not much authorities, rules or punishments. They might make their children lack of self-control or aggressive, but alongside with these disadvantages, there are also numerous benefits. Permissive parenting helps children to be successful, have the courage to achieve their dreams and gives parents greater understanding of their children.
