Some kids learned bullying from:

  • Parents

  • Brothers

  • Sisters

  • Friends


Some do it because they were victims themselves. Some people get happy to see other kids sad or depressed.


Watching violent movies or shows can also have an effect on bullying. Most young people are bullied because it looks like they can’t stand up for themselves.


Children usually learn act this way at home. They will use weaker kids as a target/victim. Some kids have friends who take violence positively. Even a lack of warmth and involvement from parents

can cause children to bully.
