Punishments: What Predicts Adult Approval.
Buntain-Ricklefs, Joanne J.; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v18 n11 p945-55 Nov 1994
A survey of 449 parents found that 24% experienced uncommon punishments (such as burning) during their childhoods and 6% approved; 45% experienced and 17% approved of common punishments (shaking); and 94% experienced and 88% approved of very common punishments (spanking). Approval of each punishment was related to experience. Race, income, and education were not significant approval factors. (Author/JDD)
