How parents impact child development has been a long interest in the field of psychology. It is evident in recent researches that there are convincing links between parenting styles and the effects these styles have on children’s self-esteem. The term, “parenting styles” refers to behaviours and strategies used by parents to control and socialise their children (Lightfoot, Cole & Cole, 2009). According to Baumrind (1971), there are three types of parenting styles, namely authoritarian, authoritative, and permissive. It was later re-evaluated by Maccoby and Martin (1983) into four styles, which are authoritative, authoritarian, indulgent, and neglectful.
How so? Each parent has his or her own methodology as to how they would raise their child, this is called parenting style.

That means authoritarian style is not an effective way to help children seek for accomplishment. Indeed, other parenting styles are the better way to perform more outstandingly. Kingsley Nyarko (2011) suggested that there is a positive relationship between authoritativeness of parents and academic performance of their adolescent. These parents might have high expectation on children, but they will give appropriate support to them and praise them in response to good result.

For example, children who are in a good relationship with their parents while still remaining in contact with them prior to the separation or divorce, transition better into adulthood .
