Permissive parenting is a parenting style characterized by tendency for the parents to permit behaviors of their children.

This parenting style is a warm,but lax pattern of parenting in which adults make relatively few demands and permit their children to freely express their feelings and impulses. Few rules;few demands They do not closely monitor their children's activity and rarely exert firm control over their behavior. Usually non-punitive. These children tend to be more selfish, impulsive, insecure and low achievers. They tend to lack in social responsibility.[citation needed]

This form of parenting is least effective on the reward and punishment aspects of the child's brain [citation needed]. Positive and negative reinforcement from outside the parental relationship to the child is considered with greater importance to brain development, than it would have omitting permissive parenting proportionally.
