Study Finds Every Style Of Parenting Produces Disturbed,
Miserable Adults

October 26, 2011

SANTA ROSA, CA—A study released by the California Parenting Institute Tuesday
shows that every style of parenting inevitably causes children to grow into
profoundly unhappy adults. “Our research suggests that while overprotective
parenting ultimately produces adults unprepared to contend with life’s
difficulties, highly permissive parenting leads to feelings of bitterness and
isolation throughout adulthood,” lead researcher Daniel Porter said. “And,
interestingly, we found that anything between those two extremes is equally
damaging, always resulting in an adult who suffers from some debilitating
combination of unpreparedness and isolation. Despite great variance in parenting
styles across populations, the end product is always the same: a profoundly
flawed and joyless human being.” The study did find, however, that adults often
achieve temporary happiness when they have children of their own to perpetuate
the cycle of human misery.
