Attitudes towards and the Practice of Discipline amongst Parents of Pre-School Children in Nottingham.
Thompson, Anne E.; Pearce, John B.
Children & Society, v15 n4 p231-36 Sep 2001
Compared beliefs of parents from Nottingham, England, about disciplining young children to their actual behavior management practices. Found that although one-quarter of parents agreed that "smacking" was appropriate in handling a 3-year-olds' unsafe behavior, almost two-thirds had smacked their preschool child in the preceding week. Parents endorsing use of noncoercive management techniques also smacked their children. (Author/KB)
