EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION 2
A famous psychologist, Diana Baumrind, during the 1960's described three various and
different styles of parenting, that is; permissive, authoritarian and authoritative parenting, but
later on researchers discovered or rather another parenting style referred to as uninvolved
parenting.
Uninvolved parenting
Uninvolved parenting also known as neglectful parenting can be seeing or rather
characterized in the parent's behavior to their children by not showing concern and responding to
the child’s needs and wants. This is fir example in a case where a parents either dismisses,
ignores or even neglects the demands of their child completely. In this kind of parenting, usually
the parent cares and worries less about meeting the demands and needs of the child (Lisi & Lisi,
2007). Even though some parents provide all the basic needs to the child, they are usually very
detached from them, since they lack time to spend and interact with their children.
There are various factors that lead to this kind of parenting which has a consequential impact on
the life of the child due to the minimal communication between the parent and child.
Permissive parenting
These kinds of parents are referred to as indulgent parents. They usually make too few
demands or rather expectations from their children. Usually a parent is responsible to
disciplining their children but as for the case for such parents, they let them go scot free despite
the mischief they have done or intended to do. attributes of such parents have been linked to lack
or due to low self esteem or even maturity (Parent, Forehand, Merchant, Edwards, Conners-
burrow, Long, & Jones, 2011).Diana Baumrid claims that usually such parents are far much
responsive than the demands they make. Such parents however have a constant communication
with their children compared to the uninvolved ones, and more often they are seen to take the

role of a friend more than that of a parent.
Differences
They are more of two opposite’s sides, when uninvolved parents lack and share little time
with their children, in the case of permissive parenting it is the opposite, since the parent is too
close to their child (regarded to as a friend due to the close relation). Basically the main
difference between this two parenting styles is the difference in the type of relation and bond that
the parents and children share.
The reason why parenting differs among parents can be linked to a couple of factors such
as: religion, size of the family, culture, parental background, educational level, personality or
even due to the socioeconomic status in the society.
During the development growth stage of a five year old change, in the social
development, the parenting style that the parents use affects the child. It is during this stage
where the child knows how to create friendship and interact with others in the society. for
example, the case of a permissive parent who ends making the child to be shy and luck enough
self confidence in him or herself and even since such parents do not question their children, it
consequentially deteriorates the level of discipline. For the case of uninvolved parenting, since at
this age the kids' emotions are developing, and the fact of been so lone and neglected hurts them.
this could lead to either making the kid want to stay alone with no social life or even hate other
people seems they are usually neglected(Parent, Forehand, Merchant, Edwards, Conners-
burrow, Long, & Jones, 2011).
In conclusion, the parenting style that parents use defines the kind of relationship that the
parent and their children have. This however also defines the life of the kid since parenting is
directly linked to or rather be a crucial element influences that determines the life of the child.
