This is an open debate and I am on the side that is against stricter parenting, so the person who agrees to debate will have to argue for strict parenting. Feel free to start debating and good luck!

Alright this should be a fun debate!

Okay so I will have 3 main points.

1. Strict parenting can lead to your child being successful. For example Andre Agassi one of the best tennis players ever had extremely strict parents making him play all day and eat healthy. But in the end it did pay off and he won 8 grand slams. Really if you look at most successful pro athletes then you will see that they had strict lifestyles so that they could dedicate themselves to the game. As people say "Ball is life."

2. Having parents that are strict will lead you to be less likely to do rebellious. I would like to reference you to the show "World's Strictest Parents." ( http://en.wikipedia.org...) In this show it focuses on extremely selfish and rude children who are very rebellious. The parents do nothing about it and therefore the kids do nothing to change there attitude. But when they are sent to strict parents they usually come back having learned something about they are terrible kids and that they need to behave better.

3. You have higher expectations for your child. This will lead to your child working harder and trying to succeed. Which is much better than saying when your son/daughter fails a test "well just do better next time." This doesn't incentivize the child to work harder and do better at all, in fact it might make the child more lazy. The child hearing that you will just wave it off will make them think that they don't have to work hard because if they don't there will be no punishment.

You have made some very excellent points up there, but there are negatives to strict parenting. I will also use the point system.
1. Typically, strict parents are not very warm or open. and this can lead to communication problems between the parents and the child. when a child is afraid that his feelings, thoughts or actions might be criticized or punished. He or she is not likely to share these feelings with their parents. This creates communication problems because the child feels powerless.
2.strict parenting can lead to secrets and lies. when children have a lot of strict rules placed upon them, they learn quickly how to avoid punishment. Thus hiding items and activities from their parents and the child is adapted to avoid consequences. For example the child invite friends over, lie or refuse to talk about his or her day because they are afraid of being punished.
3. strict parenting can lead to blind obedience. a strict household does not allow children to make decisions on their own, this can lead to children being easily tricked into doing something by a peer that the child doesn't know what to do. this is only because the child has no power in the family. As this child grows, he or she may not question authority when they should. According to Aha! parenting, "These children are less likely to take responsibility of their actions, and are willing to follow others." this can lead to the child making poor decisions in their life.
4.strict parenting can also lead to bullying. children raised in a strict home often become angry. A strict parent typically establishes limits without empathy. must be obeyed without question or explanation. as a result, the child could potentially bottle up that anger and use it on others, or worse just keep it inside and never release it causing peptic ulcers.

In the 1940's, Japan used the strict parenting system was used in almost every household. The older Males were considered to be the power of the household and females were considered to be "second class citizens" thus causing gender inequality.

For example being rebellious, drugs, under age sex, underage drinking. All of those things are bad. And we aren't talking about countries here are we.

Yeah sure, by stricter I mean keeping your child in a bubble. You need your parents approval for almost anything. Your parents will disapprove of anything with violent themes.

A clearer definition of what you mean by "stricter" would be helpful.
