Thus, they may behave when the parents are around (out of fear of punishment) but misbehave when on their own.

Fielder (2008) suggested that irresponsible attitude may have an effect on the child ability to interact with peers, because children of such characteristics do not consider the consequences of their actions. In like manner, neglected children are coming from families that are both unresponsive and undemanding. Parents relating to this category, are emotionally uninvolved, unsupportive and unresponsive. As a result of this defective parenting style, children struggle to develop social skills, and therefore generally are avoided by their peers, and later become more isolated. Not being able to form an emotional attachment to a prominent figure (caregiver or friend) neglected children develop an aggressive, antisocial, impulsive behaviour (Wendy L. G.

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).
