His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, 10 June 1921 to 9 April 2021

Read about the arrangements following The Duke of Edinburgh’s death

Twelve questions about attitudes to parenting practices and child discipline were asked of 1,022 adult respondents (of which 56% were parents).

These were included in the November 2013 wave of the Wales Omnibus Survey.

The aim of the research was to collect data on:

  • the methods used by parents in managing their children's behaviour
  • the attitudes of both parents and the wider community towards physical punishment
  • where parents obtain information that inform their practices.

The report presents a factual representation of the results and does not examine causal links.
