This week in parenting: 30/4/14

A study has found that mother's and father's have different impacts on children's health behaviors. Mothers were found to have more impact on healthy eating practices via the use of limit setting and reinforcement while father's were able to have more impact on physical activitiy via reinforcement.

A study has found that adolescents of parents with a rejecting-neglecting parenting style are at increased risk for suicide while adolescents of parents with an authoritative style are at decreased risk.

Teenagers whose parents have an authoritarian or neglectful parenting style as well as those whose parents provide them with alcohol or otherwise consent to alcohol use have been found to be more likely to have heavy drinking episodes at least monthly.
