Children need the security of knowing that their parents will always be there for them in any situation. They are very well known that when situations will not be in favor of them, then their parents will support, encourage, great and teach them how to deal with situations and find a solution.
Authoritative parents show both love and discipline towards their children. They don’t give any harsh punishment or manipulate their children. Rather they show respect to their child and the balance of love and discipline is accomplished.
Children are motivated to work hard when their parents are constantly encouraging their children, pointing out their strengths, helping them to work on their weaknesses and celebrating every victory as their parents know and be grateful for their efforts.

They will be constantly evaluating their approach to keep pace with their children’s growth and making sure that their expectations are age appropriate.
Authoritative parenting promotes productivity in children. And parents are deeply concerned about the results their children will gain. When a child goes through difficult times the authoritative parent is well aware of what is happening and gives their child counseling and support in overcoming the hurdles.

Authoritative parenting leads to the close and mutual relationship between parent and child. Children are taught through valuable relationship skills. The relationship between authoritative parents and their children is healthy, affectionate, sociable and courteous.
