Researchers Identify Successful Parenting Strategies

  1. 1. In the 1960s, psychologist Diana Baumrind conducted groundbreaking studies into child-rearing and identified a number of distinctive parenting styles. Since then, researchers have fine-tuned their understanding of the impact that these different styles have on children as they mature. Not surprisingly, parents who are uninvolved or overly permissive raise children who lack self- control, self-esteem, and overall competence. With little guidance, these children fail to truly mature socially and intellectually.
  2. 2. Authoritarian parenting styles demand obedience. These have a slight advantage over more detached parenting styles in that they produce children who are generally capable. However, these children grow to become largely unhappy and poorly equipped for social interactions.
  3. 3. The ideal parenting style appears to be authoritative in nature. This style of parenting relies on reason in dealing with children's demands. The perception of fairness makes children more likely to obey their parents. More importantly, the ideals of rationality and fairness become internalized in those children, who eventually mature to become well-adjusted, successful, and generally happy people.
