Study tests familial and adult influences, peer relations, and distal contextual factors as correlates of a continuous measure of bullying behavior within a sample of middle school students. Results reveal parental physical discipline, time spent without adult supervision, negative peer influences, and neighborhood safety concerns were each positively associated with bullying. Positive adult role models were associated with less bullying. (Contains 36 references and 4 tables.) (Author/GCP)
