There is no lack of example about academic success, e.g.:
Steinberg, Elmer, and Mounts found that all three aspects of authoritative parenting (acceptance, psychological autonomy, and behavioral control) were significantly associated with school success. From Literature review,
Parents value obedience and are willing to use physical force to keep their children under behavioral control.
Autonomy and self-assertion are strongly discouraged by authoritarian parents, as they think children should follow their words and advices. From Literature review,
The representative of the Society for Truth and Light pointed out that parents nowadays need to work and cannot spend much time on taking care of the children.
