Why are parenting styles important? • Psychologists have been always been interested in how parents impact child development. • They study what effects the different parenting styles have on children.
What are the four parenting styles? • Authoritarian • Authoritative • Permissive/Indulgent • Uninvolved/Neglectful
Authoritarian • Children are expected to follow strict rules established by the parents. • Failure to follow rules results in harsh punishment. • Usually, parents don’t give reasons why the rules exist.
Authoritative • Also have rules and guidelines the children are expected to follow • However, parents are more willing to listen to children and their questions • When rules are broken, parents tend to be more nurturing and forgiving than punishing.
Permissive/Indulgent • Parents have very few demands • Parents rarely discipline children • Parents are generally nurturing and communicative with their children, but they tend to take on the friend role than the parent role
Uninvolved/Neglectful • Parents have few demands and don’t communicate much with their children • Most parents still provide basic needs (uninvolved), but are detached from their child’s life • In extreme cases, parents are neglectful and don’t even provide their child with the basic needs
