Indian mothers were interviewed using a structured questionnaire in this pilot study. Findings show that Indian parents are moderately supported in carrying out their parental responsibilities and working on their household chores. A small number of parents use abusive child-disciplining methods, and a number of them have a rather greater acceptance of the practice of authoritarian parenting. Indian parents in Hong Kong should be helped to understand children and develop skills to use non-violent methods in discipline.
