Comment

Many episodes of bullying happen partly in school and partly in the community. It is important, therefore, that agencies such as the police and social services, which work in the community, co-operate with schools to find a solution.

Work by Olweus (see his book 'Bullying at School: what we know and what we can do' which was published by Blackwell in 1993) and others suggests that families can influence the likelihood of a child becoming involved in bullying, either as victim or bully. Outside agencies can work with schools to help families think about links between parenting and bullying.
