Paternalism (or parentalism) is described as "strong" or "weak.".
Strong paternalism is the intentional imposing on an unwilling or uninformed person some action that is considered to be in their best interest, even though the person may disagree or not be adequately informed about the action. Weak paternalism is similar actions when persons are vulnerable and likely to make poor decisions; there are conditions where it is justified.
