Some parenting styles have more negative outcomes than others. Some have both positive and negative outcomes. The authoritarian parenting style is a style in which the parent has the only say. This parenting style “is based on obedience and the expectation of a child obeying without an explanation required” (McMillian). Authoritarian parents are more likely to discipline their children.
It can be very beneficial to parents to understand that how one raises their children can give them a foundation for good development for years to come. Authoritarian parents, show very little acceptance, have very high expectations of their children and are extremely controlling. These parents are strict, and use a prohibitive and punishment method. According to a research done by Kimberly Kopko from Cornell University, it “reveals that adolescents of authoritarian parents learn that following parental rules and adherence to strict discipline is valued over independent behavior. As a result, adolescents may become rebellious or dependent” (2).

Not only that, but they also are more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol (Types of Parenting Styles). Parents have many strategies when it comes to managing the behavior of their children. People’s parenting style depends on the communication between them and their child and the amount of loving care and attention the child receives.
Four Styles of Child Rearing Permissive parents "are more responsive than they are demanding. They are nontraditional and lenient, do not require mature behavior, allow considerable self-regulation, and avoid confrontation" (Baumrind,1991, p.62). They allow their children to make too many decisions for themselves. Some of these parents believe that they have little control of their children?s behaviors.

These two styles are similar sounding, but have nuanced differences. Authoritarian parents hold their children to an exceedingly high level of status and success. In this style of parenting, children are expected to follow the strict rules established by the parents. Failure in following rules typically results in penalty. Authoritarian parents fail to elucidate the rationalization behind these rules.

Intro Good parenting is key for the development of young children for the way they act, make decisions, lifestyles and how they perceive others. So, when it comes down to choosing the right parenting style, it can be a bit challenging for many new and old parents. There are currently four popular parenting styles that consist of authoritarian, neglectful, permissive and authoritative. Although there are only four main parenting styles, parents can still be non-decisive and have a mixture of the parenting styles. Within this work I will be explaining the four different parenting styles and the effects they have on children.
Lomanowska, Boivin, Hertzman,& Fleming(2017) explain parenting is considered to be the cornerstone of early socio-emotional development and an adverse parenting style is associated with adjustment problems and a higher risk of developing mood and behavioral disorders. There are four parenting styles which include authoritative, authoritarian, rejecting-neglecting and permissive. Authoritative parenting is supportive and responsive with high expectations; communication within this style of parenting is bidirectional, authoritarian parenting has high expectations with little warmth and no opportunity for communication between parent and child. Rejecting-neglecting parents are often with self-absorbed in that they are more concerned with their own needs than their children; they are not responsive or supportive of their children. In findings from a study of juvenile offenders by Lamborn, Mounts, Steinberg & Dornbusch (1991), they( juvenile offenders) describe their parents as authoritative are more psychosocially mature, more academically competent, less prone to internalized distress, and less likely to engage in problem behavior than their peers, whereas those who describe their parents as neglectful are less mature, less competent, and more troubled.
Authoritative parenting and uninvolved parenting are both on opposite ends of the parenting spectrum. Each parenting style results in two completely different types of young adults. Authoritative raised children are likely to grow up to be respectful, educated and well liked adults. Children raised by uninvolved parents are likely to grow up with mental and drug abuse problems as well as poor social behavior. Children are the future of the world.
As children grow from infancy into adolescence the role of parenting broadens. How parents react to their child's actions communicates a standard of appropriate and inappropriate behavior that are fulfilled with varying degrees of conscious awareness. There are two major dimensions that underline parenting behavior. The first, and most important, is parental acceptance. Although most parents are at least moderately accepting of their children, some are indifferent, rejecting, or even hostile.
