This just in from "no shit studies" central: According to research collected from studies about bullies in six countries, children of authoritarian parents ("parents who are demanding, directive and unresponsive") are more likely to become bullies between the ages of nine to 16. Alternatively, children of responsive and nurturing parents are less likely to bully others. Monkey see, monkey do. Bullying also runs equally between both genders, with boys resorting to physical bullying and girls using verbal tactics to bully and humiliate the attacked. [Eureka Alert]
