Using these two variables she named three distinct parenting styles being Authoritarian, Permissive and Authoritative. The Authoritarian parent is the most aggressive, being high in demandingness and low in their responsiveness. They often rely on punishment for negative behaviors or lack of rule following due to their controlling nature. The child of an Authoritarian parent tends to be withdrawn and anxious, particularly in social situations. However, they are more likely to do well in school and disregard activities such as drug-taking or excessive drinking.
These parents believe it is their responsibility to provide for their children and that their children have no right to tell the parent how best to do this. The tough love style of parenting is the "tough love" style is used by many parents, though it is still too early to say what percentage of American parents use this style parents who adopt the tough love style of parenting tend to display high degrees of demandingness and low levels of responsiveness with their children These parents tend to engage in one-way communication The difference is that these parents are more likely than authoritarian parents to
It’s beneficial as there are male and female role models available for the children, and it gives the parents more control of how their children are brought up. Another strength is that there’s less interference from wider family members however this can also be seen as a negative aspect, as other people are unaware of what’s happening and if there was any problems within the family and therefore it’s difficult to identify neglect. This also makes it difficult to seek professional help outside of the family. Another disadvantage of this privatised nuclear family is that children are only exposed to one set of values and so are influenced to become like their parents in the future as they have no exposure to other behaviours of different families. A criticism of this
An adolescent child benefits from this style of parenting because it allows flexibility and keeps the line of communication open between the parent and the child. The uninvolved style of parenting is described as having very few demands, low responsiveness and little communication. An adolescent with this type of parent receives little or no guidance and nurturing. Authoritative parenting, also known as balanced parenting holds high levels of maturity for the child. Parents monitor and set clear standards for their children’s conduct.
When a family system lacks spiritual modeling, the children do not develop a spiritual relationship and lack religious meaning in their family life (Roehlkepartain, King, Wagener, Benson, 2006). Healthy Family Systems A healthy family system is a family unit in which each members has their needs met. These needs include safety, security, survival, love and belonging, as well as self-esteem and developmental skills.

RUNNING HEAD: PARENTING STYLES Touro University International Leslie Odoms MAE533 – Physical Motor, Perceptual and Moral Development of Children 0-8 Case Assignment Module 4- Parenting Styles Dr. Marilyn Lender Parenting is a complex activity that includes several precise behaviors that work independently and together to influence child outcomes. Although precise parenting behaviors, for example spanking or reading aloud, may influence child development, looking at several specific behaviors in isolation may be misleading. Many writers have noted that detailed parenting practices are less important in predicting child well-being than is the extensive pattern of parenting. The constructions of parenting methods are most useful to capture normal variations in parents' attempts to control as well as socialize their children. Although parents may vary in how they try to be in command of or socialize their children and the degree to which they do so, a hypothesis came up that all parents are to influence, teach, and control their children, which should be their primary role.
In families where alcohol or other drugs are being abused, behavior can range from loving to withdrawn to crazy and can be frequently unpredictable and communication can often be unclear. Family life can be characterized as chaotic and uncertain. Structure and rules may be either nonexistent or inconsistent. Children, who may not understand that their parent’s behavior and mood is determined by the amount of alcohol or other drugs in their bloodstream, can feel confused and insecure. They love their parents and worry about them, and yet feel angry and hurt that their parents do not love them enough to stop using.

This topic is very controversial; some believe that childhood abuse often leads to a rough life but others say that they way you grow up does not affect the way you turn out. I personally believe that the way you grow up does affect you in the long
On the other, in contrast to be within a functional family, children being part of a dysfunctional family are any family that are poorly functioning, and consist of family members that are not supporting all its members. “In every nation and with every type of family, three factors increase the likelihood that a family will be dysfunctional; low income, low stability, and low harmony (Teachman, 2008b).”(Berger, 2010) Pressures build and affect each other leading to a dysfunctional family unit, for example a single parent receiving less income than that of a two parent home. Children having to deal with divorce also adds to the pressure adolescent children. Unfortunately dysfunctional families exist, and often that dysfunction is passed down through generations, many children are being raised by single parents, raised in two households, or have to
