Parenting Effects On Children

Effects of parenting
Many people have their own way of parenting. Some may be strict, and some may not. The way someone parents their children should not have an effect on the children, but it does. Parents are not aware of the effect they have on children until something severe happens. There are different types of parenting styles: controlling, permissive (cool parents), enmeshed (your life is my life), neglectful, and balanced. Parents should not be so strict on kids or set high standards for them because it can have lots of negative effects in a child’s life.
Different parenting styles can have a different effect on children. Controlling parents tend to be very hard on their children. A study showed that parents who are controlling and

They are not strict or controlling on their children. They will allow their kids to start making their own decisions at an early age. However, children with this type of parent tend to have problems with authority and tend to perform poorly academically (Joseph and John 20). Permissive parents allow their children to make most of their decisions on their own. They do not have a set of rules for their children to follow, they just allow them to pretty much do what they want to an extent. Sometimes permissive parents just do not have enough confidence to set rules, or take more control. They may have grown up in a strict home where they were not allowed to do much of what they wanted. As they got older, and had children they told themselves that they were not going to be like their parents (Joseph and John 20). They do want their children to grow up in the same household as them.

They show little interest in their teens and make very few demands of them (Carlson 89). Most parents are neglectful because that is how they were raised. Growing up their parents did not pay attention to them, so they grew up, had kids, and did the same thing. Some parents are neglectful because their family did not have much money growing up, so now their only focus is their career and making sure their kids do not have to grow up like that as well. Teens whose parents neglect them tend to have emotional and behavior problems (Carlson 94). They may not do well academically because they do not have that support. Some teens go to school and do well because school is the only place they have to really express themselves. When teens with neglectful parents go on to college it will be even harder for them to succeed. They may end up being attention hungry or competitive (Carlson 98). With some teens it is easy for them to succeed and go after their career because they do not want to be like their parents. Therefore, they will do everything they can so that when they do have kids, their kids will not grow up the same way they did. Teens with neglectful parents will be able to overcome it and
