This research aims to investigate the relationship between reported parental punishment and the conduct problems in the school children. The sample was taken from various public and private schools of Lahore. The sample consisted of 150 school children of ages 10-16 years. Purposive sampling technique was used for this purpose. A self constructed Questionnaire, comprised of 51 items, based on the guidelines from Eyeberg Behavior Problem Inventory (Eyeberg, & Pincus, 1999) was used to check the conduct problem in school children. A self constructed scale based on Parental Punitiveness Scale (PPS by Ralph Epstein & Komorita, 1965) was used to check the relationship between reported parental punishment and the conduct problem in school children. Pearson product moment correlation, independent sample t-test and ANOVA were used for inferential analysis while descriptive statistics was used for analyzing the demographic data. The results generated indicated significant positive correlation between reported parental punishment and conduct disorder in school children.
