Children with unsupportive parents are more likely to bully others and are more likely to have experienced bullying. Mehmet Karakus and his research team explored the relationship between student self-esteem, bullying, and parental support. 

Participants aged 11 to 17 years old were asked how often they had bullied someone or been bullied by someone in the past six months.

Their findings demonstrated that parental support had a significant impact on self-esteem and bullying behaviour.  

Those who reported a lack of parental support were more likely to have engaged in bullying behaviour as well as been the victims of bullying. 

These findings were published in the journal Revista de Cercetare si Interventie Sociala.
