The guide for the upbringing of children and adolescents from love and good treatment published by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), "Beneficios de la Crianza Positiva en el Hogar" (in Spanish), reveals some benefits that are generated in households that implement positive parenting. The report makes small reflections of the benefits that can generate for our children to be happy in their lives. The Woman Post's model is positive parenting, which recognizes that parents are not born learned and that we are in a learning process.

The guide's findings show that it is unnecessary to use violence to educate children. However, some parents consider that the only way to raise children is with violence, but it is because they were raised in the same way. A study called "Diagnosing Social Norms with Adults on the Rights of Children and Adolescents" published by UNICEF reveals that parents in communities have little knowledge about children's rights. Even the analysis shows that 8 out of 10 adults believe that the best way to correct children is through punishments, such as beatings and screaming. 6 out of 10 adults indicate having an appropriate attitude, which implements violence. Similarly, 4 out of 10 adults say that neglect is widespread in communities.

On the other hand, the detailed analysis by UNICEF suggests that fear does not educate and runs in those parents who need to be the example that drives their lives with positive parenting. This action is based on respect for the child's rights, promotes emotional control, emphasizes mutual respect and most importantly, positively builds affection with patience and tolerance.

Research on Parenting Styles in Colombia

An article called "Study of Parenting Styles in Children and Adolescents in Colombia: A State of the Art" by Sandra Castillo and published by Búsqueda Magazine reveals that families make up a structural and functional system where they relate to each other. According to these actions flows a positive or negative environment of socialization. However, some authors consider that the elements that determine parenting styles contribute to optimization in educational practice.

However, other authors consider that parenting patterns generate behavior in children. If the parenting is positive, the behavior is friendly, but if the parenting is hostile, the behavior is antisocial. On the other hand, parents also influence the proper deployment of behavior.
