3. Résumé


« This study was undertaken to reveal the prevalence of physical punishment of children by Canadian-Armenian parents in Montreal. It also attempts to assess the association of these parents’ own experience of physical punishment and their tendency to use physical punishment with their own children.
One hundred and eighteen participants from the two Armenian schools in Montreal completed a questionnaire. The first part gathered background information on the participants. The second part assessed the use of physical punishment by the participants with their children, and the third part assessed the use of physical punishment by the parents of the participants as reported by them. Results indicated that 61% of the participants used physical punishment with their children and 60.1% of the parents of the participants used physical punishment with them as reported by them. The two results concerning the participants and their own parents show that they are in concordance with each other. A chi-square test showed the relationship between the particpants’ use of physical punishment is statiscally significant. » (p. v)
