Strict Parents Create Fat Kids

So do permissive parents and so do neglectful parents create obese children by age six. The only children who are immune? Children whose parents are paragons of parenting virtue: The Authoritative parents. Of course, no definition of "Authoritative (not to be confused with authoritarian) parenting" is adequately given.

Here is the definition of Authoritative parent:

"having high expectations for self control but respectful of a child's opinions and who set clear boundaries."

So, there you go. Now, you know.
