    I have no doubt that parenting styles can profoundly affect a child's behavior negatively or positively. To support my point of view, I highly recommend that you read my hub on " Relationship Issues - Can Early Infant- Parent Attachment Styles Affects Adults' Relationship ?"

    yes, definitely! The way i teach my children, my bad habits turn out in their behaviors! Hence, parents just made another copy of themselves in their children. Therefore, we should never transfer our bad habits to our children, only the good ones.
