replace parts of a column name

Hi- I want to drop the parts of a column name that is starts with "Household.Level.form." Using the below creates a value and does not just rename the columns...

df_child_level <- df_child_level %>%

Assuming that all variables you are looking to rename starts with "Household.Level.form.", you can use rename_with() and gsub():

df_child_level <- tibble("Household.Level.form.One" = runif(1:10),
                         "Household.Level.form.Two" = runif(1:10))

df_child_level %>% 
  rename_with(~ gsub("Household.Level.form.", "", .x, fixed = TRUE))
