Teens 'mocked' by parents at greater risk for bullying, victimization
  • Parents who are mean to their children - belittle them, use sarcasm, criticize, put them down verbally - might cause long-term emotional harm to them.
  • The conclusion is based on data from 1,409 children, collected over 3 consecutive years (from 13 to 15 years old).
  • Young people who are ridiculed at home are at greater risk of adopting inappropriate anger management strategies, making it harder for them to be pro-social.
  • Dysregulated anger typically results in negative emotions, aggression, and hostility, turning children into bullies and / or victims of bullying.
