Do you think that, in order to raise the child properly, physical punishment is necessary?
This question is designed to capture attitudes toward discipline and should be asked last, after asking about parental/caretaker disciplinary behaviour. Do not be surprised if a mother or a caretaker who has indicated that she/he has used physical punishment says that she/he does not believe in such punishment. If the respondent states that she/he has no opinion on this or that she/he does not know, record '8'.
