Every child is expected to grow up with a family and be raised by his/her parents. In most cases that is what happens in a child 's life, but that doesn’t mean that every child that grows with a family and is raised by his/her parents ends up being the same. Each parent has a different way of raising their kid. (Nevid, 2009) Some styles are more effective and positive than others, but in the end the ones who chose the style they want their kids to grow up with are parents. Psychologists have discovered that even though each parent has their way of raising their kid there are four main styles that most parents use. These are: authoritarian parenting, authoritative parenting, permissive parenting, and uninvolved parenting. Which one is best? it all depends on the parents perspective on life.

Rules and following them are the most important things to an authoritarian parent. In this style parents raise their child to follow every instruction they give them and to obey every rule imposed. Failure to obey and follow these results in punishments. Authoritarian parents fail to explain the reasoning behind rules and when kids ask questions instead of explaining and actually answering the question they normally respond with “because i say so”, meaning they are not responsive to their children, even though they have high demands for them. Kids raised with this parenting style normally fear their parents and consequently are dishonest with them when they do something wrong. Overall
