Kelley, Mary Lou; And Others
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v14 n2 p219-26 1990
Abusive, potentially abusive, and control group parents (N=62) were presented with vignettes describing a child with either mild or severe behavior problems and asked to rate the acceptability of four discipline procedures (positive reinforcement, timeout, timeout with spanking, and spanking). Overall, parents rated positive reinforcement as more acceptable than other procedures. (Author/JDD)
