Parents are too busy with their careers which leads children to seek attention by being aggressive
Parents become increasingly busy with their job and don't spend enough time with their children. They don't have time to talk to them, listen to them, know their problems and simply don't know their children enough. As a result children don't get enough attention they need and deserve so they turn to anti-social behaviour in hope it will eventually alarm the parents and remind them of their existence after being notified by the teachers, even if the kids have to deal with negative consequences afterwards.
While a violent home or upbringing can be one contributive factor to bullism in schools
Much of the time; abusive behavior stems from teachers,fellow students & servants in schools.
Studies reveal that 1 out of every 8 abuse victims become abusers. This is a minority.However; if a teacher/servant/fellow-student
tyrannizes the grounds; then 1 out of every 8 students will in all likelihood acquire these habits.
Studies also reveal that institutions have their own corporate culture. That rules of behavior are set by one`s environment.
Bullies prevail where they are bred. A child would not continue in abusive/violent behavior in school if the child faces fair and timely discipline/consequences/reform. Emphasis on `fair`as unfair punishments backfire.
This reform can be anything from detention to a few hours of mandatory counseling; alternatively both.
Parents who are busy with careers rather than their children.
I felt relif reading the no on this one. I am instrested in learning more about this subject. I have not found much on this subject. i teach a young boy who see's his high powered attrony mother an hour a day if lucky. She has alomost no parenting skills at all. She allows the school and nanny to do her parenting for her. She also spends hardly anytime with her spounce who is a partner in a law firm. Her son used to be the schools top biter and now he is quite reformed. He is still active but I would not at all call him a bully. His behavor has greatly impored. I do feel our enviroment at school have helped this. But I do worry about him being hurt by his mothers lack of interest.
