Özet

Objective: In this study, it has been aimed at determining the relation between the students' exposing to family violence and their receiving disciplinary punishment at school. Methods: The sampling was formed by 408 students. Two hundred and four of these students were the ones who received disciplinary punishment at school and the other 204 students were the ones who did not receive any disciplinary punishment. In the research, a questionnaire form containing 65 questions were used in order to measure the socio-economical characteristics, family structures and family relations. Results: 25.5% of the students receiving disciplinary punishment were girls and 74.5% of them were boys; 38.2% of the students receiving no disciplinary punishment were girls and 61.8% of them were boys. According to the analysis results, the possibility of receiving disciplinary punishment at school increases in the ratio of 90% according to the parents' quarrelling frequently, 72% according to the mother's being exposed to verbal violence by the father and 70% according to the mother's being exposed to both verbal and physical violence by the father. The possibility of receiving disciplinary punishment at school decreases in the ratio of 38% when the mother behaves positively to the child rather than she behaves negatively and 74% when the father behaves positively to the child rather than he behaves negatively. The possibility of receiving disciplinlinary punishment at school increases in the ratio of 47% when the student is exposed to both verbal and physical violence by his/her mother rather than he/she is not and in the ratio of 99% when the student is exposed to both verbal and physical violence rather than he/she is not Discussion: The results show that the students who have received disciplinary punishment expose to more family violence than the ones who haven't received any disciplinary punishment. However, the fact that there are also some students witnessing or exposing to violence among the ones who have not received any disciplinary punishment indicate that exposing to family violence is not the single factor in receiving disciplinary punishment at school.
