Childhood Bullying Risk Increased By Poor Parenting – Including Overprotection
Children who are exposed to negative parenting – including abuse, neglect but also overprotection – are more likely to experience childhood bullying by their peers, according to a meta-analysis of 70 studies of more than 200,000 children.
People often assume bullying is a problem for schools alone but it’s clear from this study that parents also have a very important role to play.
Children need support but some parents try to buffer their children from all negative experiences. In the process, they prevent their children from learning ways of dealing with bullies and make them more vulnerable.
