When it comes to parenting everyone seems to have their own opinion on how to raise happy, well-adjusted children; however, there has been a great deal of research regarding the effects that various types of parenting can have on children, especially as they enter their teenage years. While none of these approaches is going to guarantee a particular outcome, there are specific characteristics of authoritarian parenting that can be detrimental to the parent-child bond as well as the behavior of the child.

One type of parenting that is practiced frequently in Asian cultures is authoritative. For example, in China children are typically raised in an authoritarian home and are expected to work hard and follow the rules. Of course, this is in a culture that is completely different from what US children are accustomed to, so the effects on the child can be quite different. Chinese children often excel under this strict discipline and parenting style; however, in the US where more permissive parenting is the norm, overly strict parenting often brings about troubled teens that are rebellious and difficult to control.

Studies have shown that children raised by authoritarian parents are often more rebellious than children raised in more lenient homes. The authoritarian parents often believe that they are the ultimate authority in their home and that the children need to conform to their rules. Unfortunately, not allowing children the ability to make some decisions on their own generally results in poor self-esteem as well as poor performance both academically as well as behaviorally.

Children who are raised in a harsh environment where strict parenting is pervasive often rebel as a way of establishing their own identity. It is natural for children to want to establish themselves as unique individuals, especially as they approach their teenage years. Unfortunately, rigid parenting styles undermine the ability of a child to internalize self-discipline and responsibility. It can also lead to depression and aggressive behavior.

Fortunately, there is a reasonable solution for parents looking to find a parenting style that allows children to learn discipline and accept responsibility without having to break them down and create a negative environment for the entire family. A more permissive, yet functional parenting style is authoritative. This style is often considered the best method by child development experts. The authoritative parent sets boundaries, but listens to their children and creates a loving home environment that can help the child navigate the difficult teenage years.

Raising children is not easy, but understanding how various types of discipline and parenting styles can affect a troubled teen is an important part of parenting. Fortunately, there is always help available for troubled teens and learning how to recognize when need help is an important factor in helping them grow into a responsible adult.

    FUCK is the internet going more shit every day, FUCKING FUCK YOU CHINA INTERNET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I have seen a great deal of useful issues on your website about personal computers. However, I’ve got the impression that netbooks are still not quite powerful enough to be a wise decision if you frequently do things that require a great deal of power, including video touch-ups. But for internet surfing, microsoft word processing, and majority of other common computer work they are okay, provided you don’t mind small screen size. Many thanks sharing your opinions

    On a serious note, I want to digress to a serious discussion on women. It is the Homo Europicus’ and Americanus’ common belief that all other ethnic groups prefer their women. Is this assumption actually valid?

    Well, apparently this IS true for Arabs, those mighty stallions of the Arabian sands, and it also seems to be true for Indians. But it seems not to be the case for Africans. Pure black brothers prefer their sista’s tropical…exuberance.

    What about Asians? Well, the Koreans, although blunt and obtuse like water buffaloes, understand the importance of choosing THEIR females. Seldom will you see a Korean man marrying a white woman. And the Japanese? Well, in their infatuation/fantisimo orgies of being One with their conquerors, they have decided to turn half white, not asian not entirely European either. These creatures are frequent occurrences in major cities such as Tokyo.

    But what about Chinese people? Well, I can speak for wealthy Chinese people. The trick is that most of us understand, that in the end, love is not about a man marrying a vagina (he can order one, however,whichever kind/color he likes, like ordering pizza), but becoming one with another soul, becoming complete. It is very important to be able to connect with the other person. Thus, personally, and in this respect I speak for many rich Chinese people, I would prefer an Asian woman, who has finer features than the European, is smarter, and is feminine enough to make me feel that I actually married a woman. Moreover, a true asian woman, that has confucianism in her blood, will take care of the home, as a female righteously should, rather than go out to night club, engaging in infertilious acts, or talk about nonsense such as feminine rights. She MUST also have kitchen training, of course.

    Do you understand? European women are interesting for short term bodily necessity. Nobody, at least among my circle, is stupid enough to marry one of you, unless you change.

    And THAT, is the truth.

    WORD.
