Take the Angry Parent Survey

This Angry Parent Survey is a worldwide attempt to identify trends and awareness in the emotions and tactics of parents when disciplining or punishing their children. Since I am primarily interested in the geographic angle, I have prepared special designations to signify your location.

Choose the designation that matches where you live. You will use only that location throughout the survey. Make a selection for affirmative (Yes) answers only, so it will move quickly. Answer every question that applies to you. After you complete the survey, you will see the latest results and may also want to have this page visible in another browser window to review the responses from other regions.

Of course, everything is anonymous and your honesty only allows a better summary. Responses with multiple locations will be discarded.
