My theory is that either those types who don't value or irrational types (because of the usually more 'democratic' leadership style) are prone to use this parenting style. I rather think it's connected to the first possibility.
I'm personally very sceptical of this, even if most people don't prefer this parenting style anymore. It's doesn't help children to learn the typical social behaviour, on the contrary, they often become tyrannic and reject any form of authority or order. But these are necessary things in a working environment.
What do you think?
