Spanking your child more than 2 x in 6 months is considered abuse.
Do you agree with this?
Factors that increase the likelihood that parents will use physical punishment include their culture, knowledge and attitudes towards spanking, religion, income, and education. Parents who are most likely to spank have:
• Experience with physical punishment as a child13
• Lesser knowledge of child development
• Lower socioeconomic leve
• Lower level of education
• Greater religiosity, particularly conservative Protestants
• Positive attitude toward use of physical punishment
