B. Parents should make all the important decisions for their children, with some input from their children. They should give in to their wishes only if their children have earned it. Discipline and respect for authority go hand in hand with warmth.

C. Parents and children should share equally in making important decisions for the children. Parents should negotiate with children about their wishes and satisfy them if those wishes are reasonable. True discipline comes from mutual respect and mutual warmth.
