Real Life Example of Theory

Say a young child says a bad word, the Authoritarian parent would probably yell and scream at the child for saying it, the Authoritative parent might tell them not to say that word and then explain to them why they shouldn't say it, and a Permissive parent wouldn't say or do anything about it.
