Child Provocativeness and Gender as Factors Contributing to the Blaming of Victims of Physical Child Abuse.
Muller, Robert T.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v17 n2 p249-60 Mar-Apr 1993
Responses by 897 college undergraduates to vignettes describing physically abusive parent-child interactions revealed that aggressively provocative children (compared to nonprovocative children) were ascribed greater blame; male respondents were more likely than females to blame the child; and the child was blamed more when the abusive parent was male rather than female.
