After reading the assigned text, I discovered that context affects a child's behavior.
The environment that a child grows in affects and shapes their behavior. The first
environment a child encounters is the mother's womb. In the mother's womb, a child is prone
to external influence if the expectant mother indulges in smoking or drinking. Nevertheless,

with the external environment, such as the parents, the teachers, and peers. Clinicians
conducting assessments or treatment with children or youth should be conversant with
parenting styles to understand children's behavior.

opportunity for dialogue. Children from authoritative parents are autonomous, and they do
not have difficulties interacting with their peers. They are also open and welcoming to
teachers and strangers. Clinicians understanding parenting styles will select children from
authoritative parents if their research involves interaction.
It is interesting to note that authoritarian parents influence their children negatively by
making them reserved and withdrawn. Authoritarian parents are strict and set strict rules that
they expect their children to follow without compromise. They love their children, but they
do not display their love to their children. Authoritarian parents are also harsh and strict in
punishing their children and do not allow negotiations with them. As a result, the children
develop trust issues, where they find it difficult to interact with their peers at school and their
teachers. The children are not open with the parents since they fear criticism and
reprimanding. Clinicians conducting assessments or treatment with children will understand
