I think this depends on several factors. The most important being the personality of the person in question. Each person is different so it would affect people differently. My parents were fairly strict when I was a child, probably because I was always getting into trouble. But as I became a teenager, and more responsible they became really lax. As a result I started respecting them more and following their rules because I didn't want them to become strict again. It seems like a trust issue. But if someone grew up entirely with no discipline they may have problems with authority figures in his/her life later such as his/her future boss.
