    La violence familiale dans la vie des enfants du Québec, 1999

    This publication presents the results of a province-wide survey on family violence conducted in the spring 1999. This is the first edition of the survey. Population data on the various strategies used by parents to educate their children are provided for the first time in Québec.

    This report provides estimates for all of Québec on the annual prevalence and frequency of different types of parental behaviours that can be adopted during a conflict with a child, including severe and very severe punitive behaviours. In addition, the data reflect the opinions and attitudes of parents regarding physical punishment as discipline and allow us to examine the links between certain forms of discipline and certain individual, family and social variables.

    The information was collected through telephone interviews of 2,469 mothers living in private households with at least one child aged between 0 and 17.
