Parenting styles

Int J Cogn Behav Creativity is increasingly valued as a skill for the future workplaces. Educators and employers are paying more and more attention to creativity training, the effectiveness of which relies on an understanding of creativity influencing factors.

Yet, the seed for creativity might be sawn early in life and nurtured through years in family and school. Links between parenting styles and creativity have been reported in literature.

However, parenting styles only explain for a small variation in creativity, suggesting the roles of other factors. This paper goes further by exploring the links between parenting styles, self-esteem, and creativity. It is proposed that parenting styles' influence on creativity may be mediated by the child's self-esteem. The proposed model has implications for parents, educators, and employers in fostering creativity in their children, students, and employees.

It also suggests that lack of creativity might be a deep-rooted issue that needs a long-term and consistent effort to improve, and that it is beyond equipping individuals with creative problem-solving techniques. As the world is stepping into the Fourth Industrial Revolution, there is an increasing concern about equipping students with the right skill sets for future workplaces.

According to the World Economic Forum, by , many technical skills will become obsolete while problem solving, critical thinking, and creativity will be the top most important skills [ 1 ]. Specifically, creativity will move from the 10 th top skill in to the 2 nd position in [ 2 ]. It is, therefore, quite worrying that [ 3 ] found a steady and persistent decrease in creativity among the American population of all ages from to Specifically, Kim argued that the decline in creativity among school age children could be due to the increased emphasis on standardized tests, which encouraged memorization rather than creativity.

Furthermore, schools have traditionally encouraged and prioritized conformity rather than creativity. From teachers' perspective, giving students the space to be unique in a classroom of students could be overwhelming.

Teachers are also under high pressure from educational authorities and parents to help students perform well in exams. Therefore, they often rely on well-tried methods rather than unconventional methods which may develop students' creativity.

A recent qualitative study among high school teachers in Poland found that teachers supported and understood the importance of developing students' creativity [ 4 ]. However, their first priority was to fulfill the school curriculum.

They also believed that creativity was more relevant for humanity or arts lessons rather than science lessons. Kim [ 3 ] also found that the decrease in creativity over the years was largest among young children from kindergartners to third graders. This suggests that the decline began in young children and it started from home rather than in schools, or both environments might have contributed to the outcome.

Therefore, creativity should be encouraged and facilitated from preschool years. Research has also found that parents have a large influence on children's development. Among 6 and 7-year-old children, mother-child interaction had more effect on the children's creativity than peers' acceptance, perceived academic competence, and perceived physical competence [ 5 ]. Therefore, while it takes time for school and teachers to change, parents could play a more active role in helping their children develop creativity.

Creativity is defined as " the capacity to produce ideas that are both original and adaptive " [ 6 ]. There are concepts of little c and Big C creativity, where little c refers to general creative problem solving in everyday situations, while Big C refers to eminent creators in specific domains [ 7 ].

This paper uses the little c concept. Several frameworks about creativity have presented the role of environmental and intraindividual factors in the development of creativity. Bettencourt [ 8 ] reviewed Carl Rogers' theory which proposed that the foundation for the emergence of creativity is psychological safety in the external environment, where an individual is accepted for his unconditional worth and not subjected to external judgement.

This environment must be established first before an individual can experience psychological freedom. When an individual has psychological freedom, he can develop three internal psychological conditions necessary for creativity, namely authenticity, openness, and spontaneity.

Rhodes [ 9 ], in his attempt to clearly define creativity, pointed out the 4 Ps of creativity: Creative person, creative process, creative product, and creative press or creative environment Figure 1.

Those variables interact in the emergence of creativity. The person variable discusses internal psychological make-up of creative individuals such as personality, intelligence, self-concept, value systems, and behavior.

The process factor covers perception, thinking, learning, and communication during the problem-solving process. The product variable refers to the characteristic of the created product. The press factor looks at the relationship between an individual and his environment. An individual is 'pressed upon' by external forces that facilitate or inhibit his creativity.

So, a creative person engages in creative processes to create a creative product in a creative press. Figure 1: 4 Ps of creativity. View Figure 1. Similarly, Amabile [ 10 ] proposed the Componential Model of Creativity, which also suggests that creativity is the product of interactions between intraindividual and external factors.

The model has evolved since then and its latest version is presented in Figure 2. View Figure 2. Amabile proposed that people are most creative when they are intrinsically motivated. Factors that can stimulate creativity include positive challenge, autonomy, encouragement of new ideas, and recognition for creative work. The intraindividual factors in Amabile's model are similar to creative person , and external environment factor is similar to creative press mentioned in the 4 Ps of creativity model.

However, Amabile's model provides a more detailed view of the direct connections between intraindividual factors and creative problem-solving steps and it considers domain-specific creativity rather than general creativity in daily life situations [ 11 ].

The external environmental factor influences task motivation, and thus has an indirect influence on the creative problem-solving process. Amabile argued that creativity is highest when an individual with relevant domain knowledge and skills for creative processes is intrinsically motivated to solve a problem and he works in a creativity supportive environment.

For a child, parents possibly play a big role in shaping his external environment. According to Bronfenbrenner's Bio-Ecological Theory, an individual's development is influenced by interactions between him and his direct and indirect contexts. Previous studies have found significant relationship between parenting styles and creativity in children [ 13 - 15 ].

Therefore, parenting style could be part of the press factor of creativity. Additionally, significant positive relationship between self-esteem and creativity has consistently been reported in the literature [ 16 - 18 ]. The findings suggest that self-esteem could be a person factor of creativity. Furthermore, parenting has been found to have significant impacts on children's self-esteem [ 19 - 22 ] and the effects are enduring and significant even at young adulthood [ 22 ].

These relationships are reviewed in more detail below. Parenting styles have been studied and classified by many researchers. One of the most commonly used frameworks is Baumrind's Parenting Styles Model Figure 3 , which classifies parenting styles based on the level of responsiveness and demandingness [ 23 ].

The original model shows three types of parenting: Authoritarian, permissive, and authoritative. Figure 3: Baumrind's parenting styles model. View Figure 3. They expect their children to be obedient without questioning the parents' authority.

They use coercive methods to control their children's behavior. They are high on responsiveness but low on demandingness. They tend to satisfy their children's needs and wants but place no or very little restrictions on the children's behavior.

They set clear expectations for their children, but they rely on reasoning and negotiation with their children in enforcing those rules. They acknowledge the children's rights, interests, and uniqueness rather than expecting unquestioned obedience from their children.

They are indifferent, and unengaged in the children's upbringing. Previous studies have found links between different parenting styles and creativity. For example, a study among , 12 to year-old students in Iran found that creativity was positively related to authoritative parenting style but negatively correlated with authoritarian parenting style [ 15 ]. The study found no significant relationship between permissive parenting and creativity.

Similarly, a different study done earlier in Jamaica found significant negative relationship between authoritarian parenting style and creativity among 66 primary school students and their parents [ 13 ].

Authoritarian parenting style explained for Again, no significant relationship between permissive parenting style and creativity was found. However, inconsistent with Mehrinejad, et al. Both studies used students' self-rating of their creativity and a parent's self-rating of parenting styles.

Since only one parent was included, those studies may not reflect the true home environment. Additionally, the parent's self-rating might be subjective and different from the students' perception of their parents. In another study, year-old South Korea students classified their parents' parenting styles on two dimensions Accepting-Rejecting and Lenient-Demanding [ 14 ], which are, respectively, similar to responsiveness and demandingness subscales in Baumrind's model.

Mother's and father's parenting styles were asked separately. The parents' total score on each dimension was then calculated. The students' creative personality was rated by their teachers on a checklist of traits such as confidence, curiosity, originality, risk taking, etc. However, the demandingness aspect did not have significant relationship with children's creative personality.

Thus, it suggests that permissive and authoritative parents, who are high in responsiveness, would facilitate their children's creativity. On the other hand, children of parents who are low in responsiveness neglectful and authoritarian would have lower creativity. Additionally, the higher R 2 in this study compared to two studies above suggests that perceived parenting styles could explain creativity better than self-reported parenting styles. Another reason could be that both maternal and paternal parenting styles were included in this study.

Miller, Lambert, and Neumeister [ 25 ] also studied perceived parenting styles and creativity but with an older group and found that, among high ability college students in the US, there was a negative relationship between creativity and authoritarian parenting style.

This is consistent with many studies above. Additionally, they found a positive relationship between creativity and permissive parenting style, but no significant relationship between authoritative parenting style and creativity.

The relationships found by the study were significant but weak. It is possible that at this developmental stage, young adults may have grown out of the influence of the parenting styles and their creativity may be facilitated or thwarted by many other factors and life experiences outside of the home.

In a rare study that included neglectful parenting style, Fan and Zhang [ 26 ] found that among adolescents of 16 to years-old in China, perceived parenting styles influenced the degree the students engaged in creativity generating thinking style.

Why Parenting Styles Matter When Raising Children

It is commonly understood that adolescence can be a time when teens attempt to reconcile their own desires and needs with the wishes of their parents. While some adolescents get through this period of time without many problems, others tend to experience many negative effects. Cultural values such as the Asian American emphasis on interdependence and family harmony may influence the type of parenting style these parents may choose to adopt.

The objective of the present meta-analysis was to integrate the available research on associations of parenting styles with self-esteem in children and adolescents. Few moderating effects of study characteristics were identified. We conclude that correlations between parenting styles and child self-esteem cannot be interpreted as a pure effect of parenting styles and that more longitudinal research is urgently needed for testing potential bidirectional effects.

Developmental psychologists have long been interested in how parents affect child development. However, finding actual cause-and-effect links between specific actions of parents and later behavior of children is very difficult.

Associations of Parenting Styles with Self-Esteem in Children and Adolescents: A Meta-Analysis

A parenting style is a psychological construct representing standard strategies that parents use in their child rearing. The quality of parenting can be more essential than the quantity of time spent with the child. For instance, a parent can spend an entire afternoon with his or her child, yet the parent may be engaging in a different activity and not demonstrating enough interest towards the child.

Его копчик больно вдавливался в низ ее живота через тонкую ткань юбки. Кровь из ноздрей капала прямо на нее, и она вся была перепачкана. Она чувствовала, как к ее горлу подступает тошнота.
