Description:
The overall aim of this study was to explore children and young people’s perspectives on parenting styles and discipline. The study was carried out against the backdrop of changing trends in Irish society, most notably, changes in family routines and relationships. Little is known in the Irish context about children’s views of different parenting styles and, in particular, about the views of children in respect of physical punishment by their parents. In line with the ethos of the National Children’s Strategy, the research involved consulting directly with children to explore their perspectives on parenting styles and discipline. A qualitative approach was adopted, involving focus group interviews with children and young people aged between 6 and 17 years. The study was carried out jointly by the School of Psychology and Children’s Research Centre, Trinity College, Dublin, and the Centre for Social and Educational Research in the Dublin Institute of Technology, and was commissioned by the Office of the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs.
