The aim of this study is to determine how the children of dominating parents differ from those of submissive parents in behavior, personality, and in their mental life and attitudes. In addition a discussion will be made of the adjustment between father and mother as married partners and of the childhood background of the parents.

The study to be reported is based upon actual cases comparing families in which there is strict and rigid control of children with families in which control of children is lax.

The collected information of this research paper follows no one single finding of any one test. Rather, the study includes a conglomeration of psychological testings and findings.
