Achievement motivation refers to the behaviour of an individual who strives to accomplish something and excel over others in a performance. Parents through their parenting styles play an important role in cultivating this achievement drive in their children at different levels of education. A very famous developmental psychologist, Diana Baumrind (1966), coined the concept of parenting style. But her conclusion that only the authoritative style works best and permissive and neglectful parenting styles result in highly inefficient and ineffective people, does not stand correct in all the situations.
