After analysing the different causes and  problems of poor parenting,the solutions to poor parenting are grouped into four groups with subgroup underneath it.

Autonomy and independence:
-Parent should treat their child with respect and encourage him/her to become self-sufficient and self reliant.

-Never pressurize your ward to study what he/she doesn't have passion for .Passion/talent is an important factor to be consider in a ward's academic pursuit.

Behaviour management:
