Authoritative Parenting and Drug-Prevention Practices: Implications for Anti-Drug Ads for Parents
Unformatted Document Text:  Drug Prevention Practices 3 child in a wide variety of situations” (Steinberg et al., 1992, p. 1267). Parents who enact (purposefully or not) the authoritative approach to parenting are typically characterized as demanding, yet warm and democratic. Characteristics and practices of authoritative parenting include: expecting mature behavior, enforcing rules and standards, using sanctions when necessary, encouraging independence and individuality; encouraging verbal give-and-take; maintaining open communication; being assertive without being overly intrusive or restrictive; encouraging social responsibility, self-regulation, and cooperation, among others (Baumrind, 1991; Dornbusch et al., 1987). Behavioral adjustment differs substantially by parenting style as evidenced in children (Baumrind, 1971, 1991; Maccoby & Martin, 1983), early and middle adolescents (Dornbusch et al., 1987; Steinberg et al., 1989, 1991), graduating high school seniors (Slicker, 1998), and college students (Strage & Brandt, 1999). When compared to other parenting styles (including authoritarian, permissive, or negligent), children from homes with authoritative parents report the most favorable psychological adjustment and social competence (Steinberg et al., 1992). Loeber and Dishion (1983) have documented in extensive longitudinal analyses that parenting variables were the most powerful predictors of juvenile delinquency. The factors influencing juvenile delinquency, including harsh and inconsistent discipline and inadequate supervision, represent the antithesis to the authoritative parent. The advantages to authoritative parenting are evidenced in research. Kaufman and colleagues (2000) studied 1,230 mothers of elementary school children in first through fifth grades. Authoritative parenting was negatively related to children’s emotional problems, moodiness, and learning difficulties, and positive correlated with their children’s competence.
