Physical abuse of the child in the family is significantly associated with bullying behaviors between children in school, given that 56% of parents say they punish their children if they make a mistake.

Exclusion from the group, social isolation, threat of physical violence and / or humiliation, physical violence and destruction of personal property, ban on talking / interacting with another colleague, spreading derogatory rumors are specific bullying behaviors that children encounter frequently in the school environment, shows Save the Children.
