Maternal Parenting Style, Moral Development


The moral development of children is influenced by the way their parents act. Numerous studies have shown that parents can influence their children's moral and ethical development through their actions. As a result, we decided to conduct this investigation. Thus, the primary purpose of this research was to evaluate how maternal parenting styles affected the moral development of secondary school students. It was a mixed-method research approach, and the researcher used a survey method to conduct the study. All of the participants were secondary school students. One thousand two hundred thirty-nine secondary school pupils were included in the sample. The moral development of secondary school students was measured from an earlier questionnaire meant to probe mothers' perspectives on parenting. The findings indicated a substantial link between authoritarian and permissive parenting styles and the maturation of children's moral character. Based on the results, it was proposed that nurturing parents are better for their children's moral growth.
