This question is designed to capture attitudes toward discipline and should be asked last, after asking about parental/caretaker disciplinary behaviour. The question asks the parent/caretaker for her/his own opinion of whether it is necessary to use physical punishment when teaching the child to behave properly. 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, circle '8'.
