Behavioral Control could be regarded as parents supervising and managing their child’s activities, providing clear expectations for behavior, and using disciplinary approaches in a non-intrusive manner. Parents scoring high on behavioral control provide adequate levels of control, are not too strict or over-controlling, but rather allow their child to have enough space to develop independence and autonomy.
