Parenting Styles and Their Impact on Children’s Behavior in Dahl’s Charlie and The Chocolate Factory
Keywords:Parenting Styles, Psychology of literature, Child Behavior, Roadh Dahl
AbstractParenting is a necessary component of human development. It assists children in developing the competencies necessary to function in and face society as adults. A good parenting approach would assist the child in functioning optimally in the society; on the other hand, a poor parenting practice would increase the child's susceptibility to negative behavior and ultimately ruin the child's future. This paper aims to demonstrate Dahl's portrayal of parenting styles and their effect on children’s behavior in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The study was performed using the psychology of literature approach, with Baumrind's parenting framework serving as the underlying theory. The finding demonstrates that parental parenting styles serve as the "mold" for children's actions as portrayed by the characters in the story. (1)Permissive parenting, as demonstrated by Veruca Salt and Augustus Gloob, (2)Authoritarian parenting, as demonstrated by Violet Beauregarde, (3)Uninvolved/ Neglectful parenting, as demonstrated by Mike Teavee, and (4)Authoritative parenting, as demonstrated by Charlie Bucket, the main protagonist.
