The purpose of this blog is to discuss the three types of parental behaviours that exist according to Diane Baumrind and how across the world, children and adolescence are affected by the type of parenting style that their parents choose to use. Future implications can be both positive and negative, however, the focus of this blog will be on the negative aspects of the parenting behaviours, specifically the authoritarian style which there is a lot to say about. There are blog posts about each type of parenting style, authoritative, authoritarian, and permissive, that provide a brief definition outlined in the Jane Brooks text The Process of Parenting as well as a link to an article on each type. There will also be blog posts about three separate empirical studies that discuss the negative implications of the authoritarian parenting behaviour and more posts with youtube videos.
