Parenting Styles

Why being authoritative rocks

Thesis

After analyzing and comparing four types of parenting (neglectful, permissive, authoritarian, and authoritative) authoritative has the most success regarding a child's future.

Neglectful parenting

These parents are very uninvolved in their children's lives. They fail to provide emotional support and the necessities that their kids need.

Permissive Parenting

These parents have no expectations for their children and are very non-confrontational. They provide a sense of warmth to their children but lack a sense of authority.

Authoritarian Parenting

These types of parents try to control every aspect of their child's lives. They have high expectations for their kids and can come off as overprotective and demanding.

Authoritative Parenting

These parents provide warmth and are very encouraging while still setting rules for their children. They allow their children to have freedom but are still reachable when their child needs help.

Effects of being raised in an authoritative home

Kids who had authoritative parents are typically more competent and more successful in things such as education and work effort. They are also less likely to become narcissistic, alcoholic, or obese.
