'''Parental permissiveness''' is the degree which [[parents]] allow their children freedom to make their own decisions and take responsibility for their own lives. Complete permissiveness can amount to [[childhood neglect], while on the other hand [[overparenting]] or '''parental authoritarianism''' can have negative consequences in the other direction. It follows that a balance needs to be struck consistent with the childs age and abilities.
