Storyboard Text

  • This comic strip illustrates  an example of how  an authoritarian parent    would handle a situation.
  • It is time to go to bed now.
  • You have to go to bed now because I said so.
  • Why do I have to go to bed, can't I stay up for a little longer and play?
  • In this comic, the situation is that it is bedtime but the child does not want to go to bed and this comic illustrates how an authoritarian parent would react in this situation.
  • No, you have to go to bed now because I said so.
  • The parent is telling the child that it is time for bed.
  • Okay if I have to I will go to  bed.
  • The child is refusing, like children usually do when it is bedtime and they want to keep playing.
  • The parent is telling the child they have to go to bed now because they said so.  Authoritarian parents usually provide the reason of "because I said so" if the child asks "why?" and do not explain why the child is supposed to be doing what they have asked.
  • The child is now giving in and going to bed because they know that if they don't get to bed they will get in a lot of trouble from their parents.
  • Children of authoritarian parents can often be seen acting in compliance as they understand there are negative consequences if they do not listen, regardless of the fact that they do not understand the reason behind the request.  They are not given the option to make a decision and become compliant simply to avoid the consequences.
