The purpose of this study was to explore the attitudes and practice of corporal punishment (CP) among Filipino parents and the factors that may impact their use of harsh punishment. Thirty-five parents, between the ages of 33 and 55 years old, participated in a group survey that was held in Manila, Philippines.
It was predicted that CP, as a form of discipline, would be prevalent among Filipino parents; it was also predicted that CP would be higher among parents of low economic status and that there were mitigating factors that impact Filipino parents' use of CP. Based on quantitative and qualitative analysis of the data collected, this study did not support all three hypotheses, although it showed that the use of CP was relatively high at 37%.
This study may provide evidence of a need for social support for both parents and children through family intervention programs and parenting training.
