Children who are exposed to negative parenting, including abuse, neglect and even overprotection, are at higher risk of experiencing bullying by their peers, a research has claimed.

The research — an analysis of 70 studies of more than 200,000 children — led by the University of Warwick, found that the effects of poor parenting were stronger for kids who are both a victim and perpetrator of bulling. The research found that negative or harsh parenting was linked to a modest increase in the risk of being a “bully-victim”.
