Parenting Styles and Adolescents' Self-Esteem in Brazil
It is suggested that Authoritative parenting is not associated with optimum self-esteem in Brazil and adolescents from Indulgent families scored higher than adolescents from Authoritarian and Neglectful families in four Self-esteem dimensions, Academic, Social, Family, and Physical.

Patterns of competence and adjustment among adolescents from authoritative, authoritarian, indulgent, and neglectful families.
Adolescents whose parents are characterized as authoritarian score reasonably well on measures indexing obedience and conformity to the standards of adults but have relatively poorer self-conceptions than other youngsters, while adolescents from indulgent homes evidence a strong sense of self-confidence but report a higher frequency of substance abuse and school misconduct and are less engaged in school.
