The Problem and Its Background
Parenting is a complex activity that includes many specific behaviors that work individually and together to influence child outcomes. Although specific parenting ...view middle of the document...
Parental responsiveness refers to "the extent to which parents intentionally foster individuality, self-regulation, and self-assertion by being attuned, supportive, and acquiescent to children’s special needs and demands". Parental demands refers to "the claims parents make on children to become integrated into the family whole, by their maturity demands, supervision, disciplinary efforts and willingness to confront the child who disobeys"
Parenting style provides a robust indicator of parenting functioning that predicts child well-being across a wide spectrum of environments and across diverse communities of children. Both parental responsiveness and parental demands are important components of good parenting. Authoritative parenting, which balances clear, high parental demands with emotional responsiveness and recognition of child autonomy, is one of the most consistent family predictors of competence from early childhood through adolescence. However, despite the long and robust tradition of research into parenting style, a number of issues remain outstanding. Foremost among these are issues of definition, developmental change in the manifestation and correlates of parenting styles, and the processes underlying the benefits of authoritative parenting.
Background of the Study
The researchers conducted the study at Centro Escolar University that was established on June 3, 1907 by Doña Librada Avelino and Doña Carmen de Luna for the instruction and training of the youth in all branches of the arts and sciences. With some benches, a single blackboard and a few books, the two educators steadfastly nurtured a dream of establishing a nationalistic center of learning for Filipino women. The first college, that of Pharmacy, opened in 1921. The College of Liberal Arts, Education and Dentistry followed one after the other. Three years later, the College of Optometry was established.
Centro Escolar University is a private, nonsectarian higher education institution with an enrollment of over 20,000 students in its three campuses: Manila, Makati and Malolos. Established in 1907, Centro Escolar de Señoritas, from a small school in Azcaraga has grown to become one of the top universities in the country today. Besides being higly recognized its programs in the health sciences (dentistry, pharmacy, medical technology, optometry and nursing) it is also best known for its undergraduate and graduate programs in education, business management, hospitality management, computer science and information technology, nutrition and dietetics, biology, psychology, cosmetic science, social work and mass communication. The recognitions from several institutions attest to its quality programs: Full Autonomy Status from the Commission on Higher Education, Institutional Accredition certified by the Federation of Accrediting Associations of the Philippines, Philippine Quality Award by the Philippine Government, ISO-9001 System Certification and...
