Child Care Health Dev. Nov-Dec 1989;15(6):401-15. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2214.1989.tb00631.x.


The purpose of this research project was to determine whether reading informational cards about appropriate developmental and behavioural expectations of children and non-violent approaches to child behaviour management would result in significant changes in parental knowledge and/or behaviour. Pre- and post-test data are compared and self-reports from parents about changes in feelings and behaviour subsequent to reading the cards are reported.
