Parenting Styles and Bullying
There’s another potential consequence of derisive parenting, though. Instead of learning how to be bullies, children bullied by their parents may learn how to become victims. And this learned behavior may manifest in peer relationships when the child is away from the home.
The children who grow up under this parenting style do not learn to think and do things on their own thus find it very difficult to make decisions later in life. This parenting style is mostly applicable to children who are very stubborn and need to be closely monitored.
A good way of reducing bullying behaviours among students would be to ensure that the students have a healthy home environment that encourages the development of good social skills. In other words, paying attention to children as well as parental supervision helps to reduce aggressive behaviours.
