This article describes the development and tests the reliability and validity of a new survey instrument, the Child-to-Mother Violence Scale (CMVS). This instrument was devised specifically to measure data regarding the incidence, perpetrators, targets, experiences and influences on child-to-mother violence as the first phase of a larger study that investigated child-to-mother violence in the western suburbs of Sydney, Australia.
