Being the backbone of every child, ‘parenting style’ is an intricate aspect to grasp despite the voluminous research that exists. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to synthesise the various research on theoretical findings, in relation to Diana Baumrind’s parenting styles. It examines the different ways in which parenting styles impact on children’s behaviour, which, in turn, influences the predictive effects on their academic achievement. It aims to bridge the gap between children’s home and school environments, bringing together the key elements of children’s lives, in order to form a more-informed approach toward their learning. Essentially, every parenting style impacts differently on each child, however, common behavioural tendencies exist that can be used to support areas that need attention.
