Or do they? Parents are the superior power at home. Children have to comply with their parents rules and guidelines. Of course, children make mistakes and discipline is a must have. However, when parents start to abuse them, adolescents may react indescribably.
Similar actions can be taken to prevent teenagers from being negatively influenced by their peers. Finally, although media can spread messages promoting violence and use of drugs, parents can help the teenagers learn to only take in information that will benefit them. As a result, by understanding and relating to the dilemmas a teen faces, the rebellion and tension between teen and his surroundings can be avoided.
The problem is that some parents may not even consider how it affects their child in public places. When a child has been abused, how long does it affect him or her into adulthood? Though there are different ways to discipline, a parent can choose from a variety of rewards to reinforce good behavior; furthermore, a trusted committee should organize ongoing parenting classes to help parents to control their temper. What are the other consequences of abuse? Parents who abuse their kids were abused and had a poor upbringing.
There is also the parent that feels that their kids should be kept in a bubble and is over protective. Some of these styles can be the cause of good or bad behavior in adolescents. Globe, It is defined as, normal variations in parents’ attempts to control and socialize their children (Baumrind, 1967). Some of the most common outcomes due to these different parenting styles is the use of illicit drugs or the consumption of alcohol. Others often have a hard time in achieving in school.

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.
Often, their education is disrupted by family violence and they start having problems concentrating at school and with truancy. Most are underachievers as a result of low self-esteem which leads to low participation in class or other school activities (Children's Services Plan). Children of family violence also have many interpersonal problems. They usually assume the victim role. Weak and unhealthy relationships are frequent in adults that grew up in violent homes.
Diana Baumrind (1967), concluded that parents present three distinct parenting styles – authoritative, authoritarian and permissive. Every form represents the level of control exercised by the parents over the child, and also an indication of children self-regulating agency, and sense of self. Children acquire social competencies and regulate their behaviour in response to their parent’s awareness of their needs to participate. For instance, Authoritarian parents set inflexible rules without justifying their decisions to their children (because I said so attitude) and exercise absolute control over them, punishing any deviation from the rules, regardless of child’s opinions and feelings. As a consequence to this condescending parenting style, children do not develop an ability to express feelings and, therefore, may detriment to their capacity to interact with peers (Fielder, 2008).
Negative influence of parents leads to the appearance of adolescent delinquency; these children are commonly raised by authoritarian parents, indulgent and neglectful. The lack of attention as well as adolescents, parental warmth, attachment and communication, monitoring and discipline do have a negative effect on delinquency. All these social problems are chains carrying the families from generation to generation, as most of these parents have had a very difficult childhood, and have been raised with physical and verbal abuse. These parents grow copying the same style from their parents, which is authoritarian parenting. There are two concepts to describe the parenting dimensions, responsiveness and demandingness.
Isolation is unable to help a child to calm down and regain control over emotions. Only parents’ presence and their comforting support are able to assist a child to build self-discipline and make a child more cooperative and more receptive to the parental guidance. “Kids tend to misbehave when the situation or their feelings tax their capacity to handle things. And when they do try to express these big emotions, they may act out in ways that are aggressive or disrespectful” (Siegel and Bryson “The trouble” 42). The objective of parents is to help the child to overcome the emotions, to assist in understanding of their nature, and to guide to master self-discipline.
Growing up in this type of environment negatively influences the thoughts and behaviors of the children living in it. Children should be protected by extended family and/or the government from the consequences that may result from living in homes where parental substance use occurs. One could easily argue that parents possess the right to live as they choose and raise their children as they see fit. A parent who chooses to use drugs may claim that he or she is completely capable of raising children because of the simple fact of being an adult. What this argument fails to consider is the effects of the parents’ use of substances on their children.
