Parenting Techniques and Child's Intimate Relationships

There are different parenting techniques and so are different ways of forming intimate relationships for children. Surprisingly, the parenting techniques play a great role in the formation of intimate relationships of children. Read on to learn about the different parenting techniques and the effects they have on children’s intimate relationships.

Parenting techniques fall into a specific group which is termed as parenting style. Some parenting styles help children have healthy intimate relationships when they grow older while some may even hamper the child’s normal mental and emotional development. So, if you want your child to be a healthy and happy person when he grows older, consider your parenting style and see what its impact would be on your child in future.

Children learn a lot when they are infants and during early childhood and relationship skills is also part of this learning. Children who have strong and supportive relationship with parents tend to show confidence, independence and social competence at higher degree when they grow up. These children are also good at intimate relationships while other children face different types of problems in adult relationships.

Parenting Styles and Their Impact on Children’s Relationships

Have a quick look at the common parenting styles and read about their impact on children’s relationships.


Authoritative parents are warm but at the same time they are strict also. The children are psychologically healthy and grow up as adults having healthy and enjoyable intimate relationships. This is also because authoritative parents help their children understand and live within boundaries that are important while listening and understanding children's concerns also. The parent-child relationship here is strong, secure and possesses the needed warmth. Children show high level of assertiveness and self confidence and have successful adult relationships as well.


Authoritarian parents are both emotionally cold and dominant. These parents make a set of rules and regulations and are strict as well as nonnegotiable with their children. Children of such parents grow up to become either aggressive or defiant towards others or submissive towards others. They most often feel anxious about their relationship and it becomes very difficult for them to form such relationships.

Neglectful and Violent

These types of parents have low parental warmth and even though they are not as controlling as authoritarian parents, they are most often uninvolved and unconcerned. They even use corporal punishments at times and therefore lack of parental warmth affects children’s relationships. These children lack basic life skills and face lot of problems as well.


Permissive indulgent parents do not set firm boundaries and instructions for their children. Warmth and affection is seen in parent-children relationship. Children of these parents usually lack self assertion and crave approval from others. They lack the maturity that is seen in other children who have gone through taking responsibilities during childhood. Since they are not ready to accept responsibility, their intimate relations get affected.

Most of the children fit into one of these relationship styles. Some avoid connecting while some seem secure. Some are anxious while some show mixture of characteristics. However, children who are happy and socially competent have healthy and successful intimate relationships when they grow up.

Love and support of parents is so important that children who lack this in their childhood are more likely to have different types of problems in adulthood. They get involved in domestic violence either ways. So, whether your parenting style matches with one or is a combination one, the most important point that matters here regarding your child’s intimate relationship when he grows up is the way you express warmth and support that your child needs. The affection and confidence shared between you and your child is ultimately what matters.
