Jamaican Child-Rearing Practices: The Role of Corporal Punishment.
Smith, Delores E.; Mosby, Gail
Adolescence, v38 n150 p369-81 Sum 2003
Examines child-rearing techniques of Jamaican adults and their assumed effects on child outcomes. Also examines the plausibility of the assumption that harsh physical punishment meted out to children is partially responsible for current social problems of that nation. Recommends approaches to tackle the broad goals of addressing familial and societal practices that compromise children's development and well being. (Contains 40 references.)
