659 words - 3 pages

In the first study that examined the effects of spanking on child aggression, researchers wanted to look at whether or not there was an association between the use of corporal punishment on children at age 3 and the aggression of the child that could potentially follow when the child reached the age of 5.

In the second phase of the study, the interviewers came back and interviewed the same people 2 years later. This time they used a checklist similar to the one used at age 3, however the questions had changed to reflect the age of the child. This was due to the fact that the children were now at the age in which they would be in school and...
