Corporal Punishment of Adolescents by American Parents.
Straus, Murray A.; Donnelly, Denise A.
Youth and Society, v24 n4 p419-42 Jun 1993
Studies use of corporal punishment of adolescents by parents among 6,002 U.S. couples (National Family Violence Resurvey). Results for prevalence and chronicity show that half or more adolescents are hit by their parents and that this can occur frequently. Unfortunately, such events are not necessarily thought of as assaults. (SLD)
