The Self-Report of Personal Punitive Childhood Experiences and Those of Siblings.
Rausch, Kelly; Knutson, John F.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v15 n1-2 p29-36 1991
This study found that 1,414 college students' descriptions of their personal punitive childhood experiences and experiences of siblings were similar, but subjects more often labeled their siblings' experience as abuse than their own experience. The evaluation of severely punitive events as abusive was a function of whether the punishment was perceived as deserved. (Author/JDD)
