Parenting Styles as Predictors of Emotion Regulation Among Adolescents

This article is about the different styles of parenting and how their children are affected. How a parent treats their child from the time of birth results in how the child will act and behave through out the rest of their adolescent lifetime. The two parenting types that are focused on in this article are authoritative parenting and permissive parenting. Authoritative parenting involves an aggressive parenting style. The parents are usually controlling and overbearing. They use high control tactics with low levels of love and affections. On the other hand, permissive parenting is all about the love. They use mass amounts of love and warmth towards their children, yet they have no control over how their kids behave.
I really enjoyed reading this article because I have noticed that some of my friend’s parents represent these exact cases. When a parent is an authoritative parent they are very strict and their kids are not allowed to have much freedom. This leads them to be rebellious in their teenage years as they try to break away from their parents grasp. When parents are permissive their kids have so much love and freedom, but this results in no discipline and no punishment routine. As these kids grow older they become out of control and have no sense of the way they are supposed to behave.
