  • Authoritarian Parents

    Control and evaluate behavior and attitudes of their children; set strict rules with little flexibility.

  • Authoritative Parents

    —Committed, loving and supportive while maintaining firm boundaries; —rational, intelligent, verbal “give-and-take”; —discuss rules and policies with their children.

  • Permissive Parents

    —Less controlling, fewer demands with no clear guidelines for their children, consult with children about decisions, less enforcement of rules, and may use reason instead of direct power.
