Parenting and Women Arrested for Intimate Partner Violence
Simmons, Catherine A.; Lehmann, Peter; Dia, David A.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v25 n8 p1429-1448 Aug 2010
Exploring the relationship between parenting and women's use of violence the current study surveyed 106 mothers arrested for intimate partner violence (IPV) related crimes on parenting styles and attitudes toward when using violence against their partner is justified. Findings indicate parenting styles indicative of low belief in using physical discipline with their child/ children and an internal parental locus of control. However, a moderate to weak relationship between parenting styles and justification for using violence against a partner was also found. Although some support for the spillover theory is noted, results are far from conclusive. (Contains 1 table.)
