As stated above, in the USA bullying tends to be associated with hostile home environments. Boys tend to become bullies, if parenting styles are hostile and aggressive. Girls on the other hand can react by becoming shy and anxious, which makes them prone to victimization (Perry et al. 2001).

Social Contexts Examining bullying from a social perspective allows us to consider multiple social contexts, or social strata for bullying and how they may affect and/or change the bullying experience.

Even when bystanders refrain from responding, they are not only condoning the behavior but their actions (or lack thereof) are displays of recognition of the acceptance of power displayed by the bully. Having been ascribed power in the group, it is then more accepting for the individual to use that power, as bullies do, through aggressive behavior.
