For children growing up under this kind of style, behavioral problems might arise. Since they didn’t have to strictly adhere to rules from an early age, they might not understand the need to respect and follow rules. Also, these kids might have the tendency to make poor choices and/or have low self-esteem.
This parenting style is on the other end of the spectrum compared to authoritarian parents. There are minimal rules to be followed and there are minimal consequences for a child’s actions. Parents who use this style have the tendency to not know anything about what their kid is doing or what is going on with their lives. It follows then that this style also is not able to police their child when they do anything wrong. They also aren’t very good listeners. They don’t devote much time and energy to understanding what a child is going through or what kind of person their child is growing up to be. While it might be debtale what the best parenting style is, it’s pretty certain that this is not it.
Children who grow up under this style lack proper guidance and nurturing. Many issues can arise because of this type of parenting style. Among them are low-self esteem issues, behavioral problems, unhappiness to name a few.
