Abstract

This study is focused on the differences, similarities, and correlation between culture (white and black Appalachian culture) and parenting styles, that are consistent within different cultures. Scholarly articles were reviewed and used in this study in order to obtain a better understanding of how these parenting styles, within different cultures are similar or different, and how they can negatively and positively affect the general welfare of the child (socially, mentally, physically). Parenting styles are broken down into four different groups. Authoritative parents tend to the emotional needs of the child and have strict demands within their parenting. Authoritarian parenting achieves less strict parenting guidelines, but they show responsiveness and nurturing to the child. Authoritarian parents enforce strict punishment. Permissive parenting is engaged in nurturing the child but are less concerned with having strict rules. Finally, neglectful parenting does not show any response to the emotional needs of a child and does not enforce strict rules. Children with the latter style tend to lack social capacity and tend to behave worse than other children. Different parents participated in a survey to obtain the data assessed in this study.

Relationship Between Culture and Parenting Styles

This study is focused on the differences, similarities, and correlation between culture (white and black Appalachian culture) and parenting styles, that are consistent within different cultures. Scholarly articles were reviewed and used in this study in order to obtain a better understanding of how these parenting styles, within different cultures are similar or different, and how they can negatively and positively affect the general welfare of the child (socially, mentally, physically). Parenting styles are broken down into four different groups. Authoritative parents tend to the emotional needs of the child and have strict demands within their parenting. Authoritarian parenting achieves less strict parenting guidelines, but they show responsiveness and nurturing to the child. Authoritarian parents enforce strict punishment. Permissive parenting is engaged in nurturing the child but are less concerned with having strict rules. Finally, neglectful parenting does not show any response to the emotional needs of a child and does not enforce strict rules.
