Children's Perspectives on Physical Discipline: A New Zealand Example
Dobbs, Terry; Duncan, Judith
Child Care in Practice, v10 n4 p367-379 2004
Ten children's views from New Zealand were investigated on the use of physical discipline in a small study that was an adaptation of a larger study conducted in 1998 by Willow and Hyder in the United Kingdom. This paper reports on children's views of smacking as a method of discipline in New Zealand families. A significant finding is that children's reports of physical discipline are at odds with adult assumptions on the effects of the use of physical discipline. (Contains 1 table and 5 notes.)
