There are four widely researched parenting styles: authoritative, permissive, authoritarian, and uninvolved, which is also known as neglectful. The styles range from controlling to undemanding, and from cold and unresponsive to loving and receptive. In recent years, over-involved parents, who are present in every aspect of their child’s life, are often referred to as the fifth style. They are also known as snowplow or helicopter parents.
