According to experts at Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, school bullies are four times more likely to turn into wife beaters than non-bullies. Recent evidence shows that men who admit to bullying their peers in childhood appear to have an increased risk of intimate-partner violence (IPV).
Experts surveyed 1,491 men between 18-35 years of age. It was noted that 16% of them carried out physical or sexual partner violence during the last year and out of those 38% said they had frequently bullied others when they were younger.
AdvertisementExperts feel that programs that may seek to reduce bullying peers during school may be effective to reduce future violence perpetration within intimate partner relationships by focusing on the reduction of abusive behaviors and the promotion of equitable attitudes across settings, life stages and relationships. The research has been published in Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine.
