Authoritarian Parenting

Authoritarian Parenting is a restrictive style that emphasizes respect for work and effort. This style of parenting allows for little discussion or explanation of the firm controls placed on the child. Psychologists associate this style with social incompetence in the child.

Diana Baumrind developed the three-type theory of parenting associated with different aspects of the child's social behavior. Authoritarian parents would ground a child for staying outside alone after dark and say that it's just the rule instead of explaining the hazards of the situation (like an authoritative parent would). A neglectful parent would just call the child in for dinner and ignore the circumstances.
