The Influence of Parenting Styles on Learners? Involvement in Behaviour Disorders in Nairobi County, Kenya
Lynett Kemunto Ong'era (PhD)
There is abundant evidence to support the correlation between parenting styles and childrens behaviour disorders. However, the relationship between parenting styles and learners involvement in behaviour problems has received little attention and research interest in Kenya. The main purpose of this study was to establish the influence of parenting styles on learners involvement in behaviour disorders in Nairobi County, Kenya. Findings of the study revealed that learners of authoritative parents have low involvement in behaviour disorders as compared to learners of authoritarian, permissive and neglectful parents. It is recommended that parents should strive to understand their children, know their friends, engage them with constructive activities and seek better ways of controlling what they access through media. Further, parents should purpose and dedicate quality time with their children, dialogue with them, listen to their concerns and address them effectively.
