Nil’s neglected son experienced a very brief period of an innocent and blithe lifestyle; however, the baby in Carver Raymond’s “Popular Mechanics” is robbed of its adolescence almost immediately. This short story hyperbolizes the effects that a broken relationship has on a child. The couple fights over possession of the child, the woman thinking, "She would have it, this baby" (Carver 1). Throughout the story, the infant is referred to as an “it”, which implies that the baby’s parent’s view him or her as an object rather than a precious life. In the parents’ vain desire to prevail over one other, concern for the child’s safety completely vacates the their minds. As they continue their struggle, the child’s wails grow louder and louder.

Those styles are; authoritative, authoritarian, permissive, and uninvolved. The four parenting styles have different attitudes and behaviors, they play a role in the way the children reacts.
Authoritative parents are sensitive and loving to their child, like permissive parents, however they also demand respect and responsibly from their child, like authoritarian parents.

The loving and sensitive parenting fosters stable and assured attachments while it also prevents kids from developing internalizing problems; at the same time, enforcing limits makes children less likely to become involved in drug and alcohol use, juvenile delinquency, or other antisocial behavior. The unstable person, on the other hand, is subject to fairly wide, frequent, often unpredictable mood shifts, harmful impulsivity and inappropriate intense anger

There are four separate parenting styles which are utilized by parents raising children. They are authoritative, authoritarian, permissive-indulgent, and rejecting-neglecting.
