Bradford Brown and Jeremy P is an article that provides multiple studies, including their own, on how parenting styles impact who an adolescent associates with and how they communicate with their parents about their peers. Many parents feel that they have a right to know what goes on during their child’s life.

The central theme of attachment theory is that mothers who are available and responsive to their infant 's needs establish a sense of security in their children.

This theory describes how the personality is developed over the course of childhood through various fixations at each stage. The five stages are oral, anal, phallic, latency and genital. Each of the psychosexual stages is associated with a particular conflict that must be resolved before the individual can successfully advance to the next stage (McLeod, 2008).
