Disciplining children: research with parents in Scotland

Project Details


This study was carried out with NFO System Three Social Research on behalf of the Scottish Executive and was undertaken between March and August 2002 when consideration was being given to changing the law in relation to physical discipline. The research was designed to provide information about attitudes and behaviours amongst parents in Scotland and had two main components. The first stage consisted of a series of qualitative interviews with couples, focus groups and individuals in March and April 2002 to facilitate a detailed exploration of relevant themes. This was followed by a nationally-representative quantitative survey of 692 Scottish parents, carried out between May and August 2002 designed to provide robust quantitative data on the prevalence of particular views and behaviours.
