Physical Punishment Of Children And Wifebeating In Cross-cultural Perspective
Published 1981 · Psychology
This paper reports the results of a cross-cultural test of the relationship between wifebeating and physical punishment of children in a probability sample of 46 small-scale and folk societies. The study indicates that rare or infrequent wifebeating is associated with rare or infrequent physical punishment, but that frequent wifebeating is unrelated to the frequency of physical punishment.
