It’s just important to know that the all-regulated parenting patterns like the one above will have a dangerous impact on children’s mental development. A study reveals that the attitude of parents who are all controlling and putting too many boundaries will cause personality disorders to children that make children feel guilty, unable to accept and face differences of opinion.
In addition, children who are in this kind of parenting also tend to display an ‘hostile’ attitude towards others when they are in a situation with different opinions. This arises as a result of the parents being overly regulated and too restricted in everything in the child’s life. Which of course, will have a negative impact on children’s development, especially in their social environment, which makes it difficult for children to build relationships (relationships) with their peers, especially when the child grows up. In addition, the behavior of children who tend to regulate their environment when they grow up will be even greater.
A study revealed that the parenting style that is too restrictive and regulating that parents apply to their children is more likely to interfere with mentally, which puts children at risk of depression and loneliness when they are adults, even though they have tried to join or are in busy conditions.
Children raised with this kind of parenting may find it easier to make them obedient and kind. But in truth, they don’t enjoy what their parents get. Children are also less likely to feel the warmth of their interactions with their parents. This is what in turn will make it difficult for children to show warmth when interacting with other people. Children will also have difficulty deciding problems on their own because of their dependence on the rules and opinions of others. Not only that, children born from ‘too controlling’ parenting are more likely to have low self-esteem.
Now, seeing the bad effects of parenting like this, of course it would be wiser if parents did not apply such parenting. However, this does not mean that parents should adopt free or unregulated parenting. This is certainly not recommended because it will make the child grow up to be a spoiled person who doesn’t know the rules. How much better it would be if parents could adopt a democratic and comfortable atmosphere in educating and caring for their children.
