  21. Authoritative child-rearing style
    The most successful approach - involves high acceptance and involvement, adaptive control techniques and appropriate autonomy granting
  22. Authoritarian child-rearing style
    Low in acceptance and involvement, high in coercive control, and low in autonomy granting

  24. Permissive child-rearing style
    warm and accepting but uninvolved. Permissive parents are either overindulging or inattentive and thus, engage in little control. Instead of gradually granting autonomy, they allow children to make many of their own decisions at an age when they are not yet capable of doing so
  25. Uninvolved child-rearing style
    Combines low acceptance and involvement with little control and general indifference to issues of autonomy.
