Correlation and Causation Research

As a researcher, you find a positive correlation between the amount of autonomy (freedom) parents grant their children and the level of self-control in these children (i.e., parents who provide their children with greater freedom over their own behavior had children with more self-control than did more strict parents who did not allow their children as much freedom). Please provide three causal explanations for this observed correlation. As you can see, the first has been completed for you. Suggestion: C can be “the age of the child,” or any other feasible variable you can come up with (i.e., it must make logical sense)1) a?b: parents granting their children more freedom caused these children to have more self-control  2) hint: b?a: _ please complete________________________________  3) hint: c?a, b _ please complete_______________________________
