Course Description: Children exposed to parental hostility, family distress, and harsh disciplinary practices are more likely to engage in bullying behavior. However, studies linking these elements of family adversity to bullying are grounded primarily in mothers' perceptions and behaviors. The present study examined associations between family adversity and children's bullying through analyses in which maternal and paternal data were treated separately. Family adversity was measured through parent surveys administered during pregnancy and when children were 3 years old. Children's bullying behavior was subsequently documented via peer nomination in grades 1 and 2. The researchers found that children's bullying was associated with father-reported prenatal family distress, as well as fathers' hostility and harsh disciplinary practices when children were preschool age. Among mothers, only mother-reported family distress at preschool age was associated with children's bullying. These and other findings suggest that anti-bullying interventions should occur early and incorporate parents, particularly fathers.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the rationale for the study as well as the approaches used to measure family adversity and bullying
  2. Describe the main findings of the study, emphasizing differences between maternal and paternal predictors of children's bullying
  3. Integrate the strengths and limitations of the study, and summarize the clinical implications for interventions designed to reduce bullying among elementary school children
