All adults use certain ways to teach children the right behaviour or to address a behaviour problem.  I will read various methods that are used and I want you to tell me if you or anyone else in your household has used this method with (name) in the past month.

Took away privileges, forbade something (name) liked or did not allow him/her to leave house).
Interviewer instructions
The following questions are specially designed to measure various ways in which parents discipline their children. These questions are not intended to cover ALL ways that parents use to discipline children, but do cover some of the more common methods. It is important that you ask each question in a neutral way - do not let your voice reflect approval or disapproval of the various discipline methods mentioned.

First, start with the introductory sentence in CD12.


Ask the selected child's mother or primary caretaker the questions in the Child Discipline module, beginning with CD12A. It is important to mention that we are interested in knowing only about what may have occurred during the past month - the 30 days preceding the survey.

When asking the questions, remind the respondent, from time to time, that you are asking about the last 30 days or one month, and that you are interested if she/he or anyone else has used this method with the child. Circle '1' for 'Yes' and '2' for 'No' in all questions up to CD12K.


'Privileges' means a right or a benefit that is not available to everyone. As children get older, parents/caretakers often extend privileges not available to a very young child. If you must explain what this question means, first try by asking each prompting question separately. If you need to give examples, try to phrase these questions appropriately for the child's age. "Did you (or someone else in the household) forbid (name) from leaving the house or from going outside for a time? Did you (or someone else in the household) prohibit (name) from doing something he/she usually does, such as playing with friends or watching TV?" For a young child, you might include such things as 'forbidding him/her to have sweets', etc.
