This type of parent is not really involved in their child's life. It is easily the most harmful parenting style and can be very bad on a child's development. The neglectful parent is rarely their for their child, or may never even be at home. They demand nothing from their child and their child gets nothing in return. This is really bad on a child because they have no sense of trust with that parent and may have a hard time trusting others at all. The child will develop low self-esteem and is much more likely to get involved in the wrong crowd.
