In the authoritarian parenting, it is the parents who establish the rules and children are generally expected expect to follow them without exception.
Children have little to no involvement in decision making and problem solving. Oftentimes, parents expect that their children will follow the rules at all times.
If children challenges these rules or ask why, authoritative parents usually say,
“Because I said so.”
Parents do not give their children reasons behind the rules implemented and there’s no room for negotiation.
Authoritarian parents may also use punishments if in case their child disobeys.
While children of authoritarian parents tend to follow the rules all the time, there are children who develop self-esteem problems as well.
Children who focus more on being angry at their parents may become more hostile and aggressive towards problems they encounter as they grow older.
