Different Parenting Styles
An Inadequate parenting style
Permissive parents show a friendly attitude towards their children. They deal with them as they both are in the same place. As a result, these children turn out to be disconnected, disaffected, materialistic, and sometimes just flat-out spoiled.They start to make their own decisions. (ajroxyoursox 1)
The outcome of this parenting style is that the children begin to make destructive decisions that can impact their health in a negative manner.
" These parents allow freedom with little or no responsibility. As their children get older these parents might feel that they have no power to make changes in their child's behavior. Children without limits have no sense of responsibility , have trouble with relationships, and the right of others and can find the world a difficult place." (Life Matters 1)
Another inefficient parenting method
Different parenting styles influence children in different ways. Although, research indicates that the authoritative parenting style has the most advantages because it maintains discipline and creates a positive understanding between the child and the parents.
" Kids from permissive families have higher self-esteem and lower rates of depression and anxiety, However, they are more likely to get involved in problem behavior (like drug use ). They also tend to achieve less at school. " (Parenting Styles 3)
" Authoritarian parenting styles generally lead to children who are obedient and proficient but they rank low in happiness, social-competence, and self-esteem." ( Cherry 2)
Impact of different parenting styles on a child
" My classmates were still mean. My grades were still horrible. So I started ditching classes. No one wants to sit at the back of the room and feel stupid and humiliated and that's how I felt." (Knight 45)
When Michelle Knight was young her parents did not care about what was going on in their daughter's life. She was physically abused by one of her relatives. Also, Michelle did very poorly in school.She was behind in school according to her age and was bullied everyday by her classmates because of her social status. She did not participate in class because she believed that if she said something wrong everyone would make fun of her.
Michelle's parents were uninvolved parents. They did not have a stable relationship which impacted her childhood. When she was little, she was forced to take care of her siblings and relatives because of which she could not concentrate on her studies. ( Knight 16)

Authoritarian parenting-
The outcome of authoritarian parenting-
Some children show an aggressive behavior towards others.
Some children are timid and less confident.
Most of these children lack friends and are not social.
They do poorly in school.
Have a lower self- esteem than authoritative kids.

"If asked to explain, the parent might simple reply "Because I said so." These parents have high demands but are not responsive to their children. According to Baumrind, these parents "are obedience and status -oriented and expect their orders to be obeyed without explanation." (Cherry 1)
Authoritarian parents and permissive parents refuse to understand that they need to change their parenting style and take an authoritative approach in order for their children to be successful and responsible. If they do so, their children will be more competent and better at school.
" Indulgent parents are hyper-defensive and lack objectivity. In [their] eyes the child is always innocent or misunderstood--and those who suggest otherwise are the enemy. These parents do not want to be told they need to change. And they definitely do not wan to hear that they are responsible for the moral struggles of the country." (Venker 3)
These parents need to come out of their shells and see the world as it is. They need to realize that being ignorant about their children is negative for both them and their children. The authoritative parenting style can make both their and their children's future bright.
As you can see, the authoritative parenting style has more advantages and is more effective than the two other parenting styles. The children of authoritative parents tend to have a bright future and are capable of achieving their goals. They never cross their limits and respect their parents. Conversely,permissive and authoritarian parents have kids who rank low in happiness and are not confident about their abilities.

An effective parenting style like the authoritative parenting style leads to the best child outcome and these children are more successful, happy and competent than their peers.
Research indicates that authoritative parenting is the most successful compared to authoritarian parenting and permissive parenting because both the parents and children are comfortable with each other. They have a strong relationship and the parents are supportive. Authoritarian parents are egotistical and forget that their children also have the right to express their feelings and demands. On the other hand, permissive parents are the complete opposite because they are not aware of what is going on in their child's life. They seem to think that if they set limits for their children they will no longer have a loving relationship with them.

The Impact of the Authoritative parenting style on children
Out of all the parenting styles, the authoritative parenting style is most likely to result in children who are successful, happy, and competent.
Characteristics of the authoritative parenting style:
Authoritative parents-
Listen to their children and respect their decisions.
Allow independence.
Place limits, consequences, and expectations on their child's behavior.
Are understanding and forgiving.
Allow children to share their opinions.
Regulate fair and stable discipline.

Expectations from a positive, well mannered parenting style
" Authoritative parents encourage kids to be responsible, to think for themselves, and to consider the reasons for rules." (Dewar 1)
" Because authoritative parents act as role models and exhibit the same behavior they expect from their children, kids are more likely to internalize these behaviors. Consistent rules and discipline allow children to know what to expect." (Cherry 2)

Parents do not have to ground or punish their children.
Reduction in "Temper Tantrums".
It can be effective through all stages of childhood.
Children tend to be responsible for their own actions and are successful.
Parents and children have a positive and a loving relationship.

Finding Me is an autobiography about Michelle Knight, a woman who had a miserable childhood, which impacted her entire life. Her parents neglected her throughout her childhood and forced her to do chores. She had to take care of her siblings and never received a proper education because of which she could not afford to live in her own house after she had her son. This shows that parents should not forget their responsibilities because it can have a negative impact on their child's future.
