The concept of parenting styles has been widely used in research on child and youth development over recent decades. Various definitions have been developed from different perspectives, but one of the most accepted is that provided, in its integrative model by Darling and Steinberg (1993), who define parenting style as “a constellation of attitudes toward the child must communicate andwhich, taken together, create an emotional climate in which parental behaviors are expressed.
