This research project explored Baumrind’s parenting styles - authoritarian, authoritative, permissive, and neglectful - within our sample population. The primary investigators used a survey method to collect data and determine the frequency of each parenting style by scoring the participant's answers about perceived emotional warmth and control in childhood. The results were compared to the perceived age, gender, and socioeconomic status of the participant's primary caregiver as well as to the participant's age and gender to determine if there is a significant relationship. This study can help to understand what factors affect parenting styles used within society.
