Abstract [en]

This study examined the effects that re-occurring episodes of child transgression have on Swedish parents' use of discipline strategies. Mothers and fathers from 84 two-parent families were interviewed about their responses to first- and second-time episodes of hypothetical transgressions committed by their 3-6-year-olds. The results showed that when their children did not respond to initial discipline, parents exchanged their use of verbal control for the strategies of coercion and behaviour modification and thereby increased the pressure on their children to comply. However, this finding was valid only for serious transgressions. For mild transgressions, parents' behaviour was consistent across first- and second-time episodes. The conclusion that is drawn is that parents appear to be willing to follow up initial disciplining attempts. The Swedish corporal punishment ban, which has been in force since 1979, therefore appears not to have influenced parents to become permissive in their attitudes toward their children's misconduct.
