ABSTRACT

Corporal punishment is use of physical force with intention of causing a child to experience pain but not injury, for the purpose of correction or control children’s behavior (Straus 1994). The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of corporal punishment on frustration tolerance. Two measures: corporal punishment scale and frustration tolerance scale were administered on 240 school going children (120 boys and 120 girls). Corporal punishment was devised in three levels as severe, moderate and low; frustration tolerance was assessed in term of time and number of attempt. Results reveal that effect of three levels of corporal punishment is found significant on frustration tolerance in term of both, time and number of attempt. Other demographic variables i. e., gender and family structure was found significant on frustration tolerance in term of time and number of attempt.
