Survey on Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices related to child disciplining at home in Serbia
Parenting is an important and challenging task and parents need support with child-rearing
The Survey was conducted for UNICEF by the Institute of Psychology and the Institute for Mental Health.
The attitudes towards violent disciplinary practices were assessed on a nationally representative sample of parents of 0-18-year-old children in Serbia and a sample of professionals who provide parenting support. The Survey also paid attention to the communication channels that parents and professionals use and trust when seeking/providing new information and advice.
Parents of various backgrounds and circumstances show strikingly similar beliefs, at very similar levels of intensity, about the joys and challenges of parenting. They share a strong sense that they are good parents, as well as a desire to improve their parenting skills.
