A short story using the Simpsons to give examples of Lifespan Developmental Psychology theories.
This outrageous nuclear family (a household unit consisting of 1 or 2 parents, and their children) has quite the entertaining daily life.
Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie Simpson always seem to be getting into all types of shenanigans.
Homer is quite the Authoritarian parent (emphasizing control and unquestioning obedience) especially when Bart gets into mischief.
However, Marge takes the more Permissive (emphasizes self-expression, and self-regulation) approach when dealing with Bart.
One can assume Bart has oppositional defiant disorder (a pattern of disobedience toward adult authority figures).
But, Marge is always there to love, and support Bart when he is feeling upset no matter how much trouble he gets into.
And at the end of the day the Simpsons are still a strong and loving family that the world can relate to.
