You are teaching an early child development class at a local community center in a predominantly African American community. A young woman in the class raises her hand and expresses confusion that the "authoritarian" parenting style discussed in the book is suggested to lead to poor outcomes. Which response is the most appropriate?

▸ "The authoritarian parenting style has been linked to poor outcomes in some populations but not others. Can you think of some circumstances in which a controlling parenting style would be helpful for children?"

▸ "Poor outcomes are defined differently in different populations. What are some ways that these so-called "poor outcomes" could actually be an advantage for children in poverty?"

▸ "Diana Baumrind's theory of parenting styles is outdated, and doesn't apply to many people. What are some alternate theories you could think of to explain what makes a good parent?"

▸ "Yes, you can see that research does suggest that a harsh, controlling parenting style is detrimental. Can you think of some ways that parents could avoid these behaviors?"
