Authoritarian Parenting

According to The Process of Parenting by Jane Brooks (2013) an authoritarian parent is:

“Authoritarian parents employed similar firm control (*as authoritative*) but in an arbitrary, power oriented way without regard for the child’s individuality.” (Brooks, 2013, 101)

Authoritarian parents wanted control but didn’t provide any nurture or support to help their children with it.

In another article published by Gwen Dewar, titled “The Authoritarian Parenting: Definitions, Research, and Cultural Differences” the same author who wrote about authoritative parenting, writes now about authoritarian parenting style and its implications.
