Abstract

No single cause leads to a child becoming a habitual bully, but research has provided us with information on several antecedent factors that seem to lead to bullying behaviors. Harsh or frequent, parental physical discipline is one of those factors. According to Barboza, Schiamberg, and Oehmke’s (2009) review, adolescent bullies tend to be reared with a lack of parental involvement and warmth (Olweus, 1993) and with authoritarian parenting, in which parents use a lot of physical discipline and power assertive techniques (Bowers et al., 1994; Rodkin & Hodges, 2003).
