Research Proposal 2 Introduction How do certain parenting styles affect a person’s academic success? I plan to test the correlation between a students’ academic success and their parents’ parenting styles. This is an important study because we can see exactly how parenting styles affect a person’s success later in life. This is a good opportunity to see which style is the most effective at producing successful people. We can then inform and tech parents how to use the most effective technique. I think that the more moderate parenting style will have the most positive affect on academic success. The stricter or more lax the parent is in their discipline the worse a person will perform. The more controlling or more lenient a parent is the worse a person will perform academically. The more balanced the parenting style the parent uses the more a person will succeed academically. I am testing the variables laxness of discipline, overreactivity of discipline, and how controlling they are when it comes to making decisions for the child. Many researchers and theorist state that parenting is important factor in determining the behavior among adolescents (e.g., Spera, 2005). Negative behavior in adolescents has been linked to many parental factors such as poor supervision and monitoring, infrequent parent and child communication, and inconsistent disciplinary practices (e.g., Clark &Shields, 2997). The four parenting styles are based on two dimensions: parental demandingness (control and restrictiveness) and responsiveness (noncoerciveness and warmth). (Maccoby & Martin 1983) According to Baumrind (1971) the four parental styles are authoritarian, authoritative, permissive/indulgent, and neglectful/uninvolved. Each style has a distinct balance of

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
