The early development of children is closely related to family upbringing, and the parenting style used by caregivers will affect the future development of children. As the more negative parenting style of the four parenting styles, relatively few studies were done about the children and youth's psychological development under the authoritarian parenting styles. Therefore, this article reviews the research on the psychological impact of authoritarian parenting styles on children and youth to analyze further and help caregivers recognize the risks of using authoritarian parenting styles. A review of previous research found that the use of authoritarian parenting has long-term adverse effects on children's health, regardless of age, including lowering children's self-esteem, psychological flexibility and maturity, and even may cause their mental illness. But authoritarian parenting styles may have different outcomes in different cultures. For example, authoritarian parenting by caregivers in collectivist cultures may help their children better integrate into society. While a parent should avoid authoritarian parenting. But they can still think about whether they can use this type of parenting in the context of their environment to use better ways to raise their children.
