Youth with good relationships stand up against bullying

Parent Interventions

Young people with good family relationships are more likely to intervene when they witness bullying or other aggressive behaviour at school, according to a new study conducted by researchers at North Carolina State University, New York.


The findings, published in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence, found that kids who were already excluded or discriminated against by peers or teachers were less likely to stand up for victims of bullying.

Peer interventions are very effective in curbing bullying and aggressive behaviors.

The team focused on 450 sixth-graders and 446 ninth-graders and collected data on their relationships with teachers, parents and peers, based on given six scenarios, each of which dealt with a specific aggressive act -- physical aggression, cyber-bullying, social exclusion or rejection by a group, intimate partner violence, social aggression such as teasing or mean-spirited gossip and exclusion by a former friend.
