dc.description.abstract This paper discusses how different levels of parental involvement determine the type of person a child will be, and explains why authoritative parenting is optimal because it involves a mixture of high and low influence. It reveals that combining high and low parental influence with the authoritative parenting style can lead to the most positive effects on children and adolescents. Numerous sources in relation to this topic are referenced, such as academic journals, books, and an interview with Renee Patrick, an expert in the field of developmental psychology. This paper offers knowledge that can benefit parents and children because it is a topic that is relevant to their everyday lives. Parenting is a monumental part of how children develop, and it is important that they are able to mature into well-rounded and successful individuals. The purpose of this paper is to present the information to parents that authoritative parenting is superior to permissive and authoritarian. en_US
