Here is a quick overview of Attachment Theory. Specifically we will look at authoritative vs authoritarian parenting. Authoritarian parenting is cold, direct, and controlling. It’s effective at shutting down bad behavior and controlling the room, but it comes at major drawbacks that manifest much later in a child’s life. In other words, you might get a child to be quiet but you discourage them from asking questions in the classroom, asserting themselves as an adult, and ultimately being leaders. A good example of authoritarian parenting is the phrase “Children should be seen but not heard.”
