Corporal Punishment Cessation: Social Contexts and Parents' Experiences.
Davis, Phillip W.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v14 n5 p492-510 May 1999
Examines the cessation of corporal punishment by parents who start out spanking their children and then make a concerted effort to stop. Draws on semi-structured interviews with 22 parents and identifies five contexts in which those efforts arose: experiential, ideological, regulatory, relational, and biographical. Data suggests cultural inducements and social support are important in explaining parents' cessation efforts. (Author/GCP)
