Abstract

Aggressive behavior in adolescence is a major problem that is common all over the world. It is mentioned that the most common type of aggressive behavior that adolescents are exposed to is bullying. There are several forms of bullying named as verbal, virtual, physical and indirect. When the long-term effects are examined, bullying behaviors cause negative consequences for both the exposed and the perpetrator. Adolescents who are bullied may experience psychological and social problems, and they are more likely to experience psychiatric problems and commit crimes in adulthood than individuals who do not engage in bullying behavior. The causes of bullying are varied and it is difficult to explain with a single reason. When the effect of parents on the child is examined, it is seen that parental relationships are a very important determining factor in perpetrating bullying behaviors and being exposed to bullying behaviors. Furthermore, it has been observed that loneliness has a great effect on bullying behavior during adolescence, and lonely adolescents have risk to be both bullies and victims. At this point; peer acceptance in adolescence, effective communication within the family, prevents loneliness and prevents the situation of being bully-victim. In this respect, it is important to develop interventions to reduce and prevent bullying and to ensure the contribution of parents for a healthy identity development.
