Researchers led by Professor Dieter Wolke analyzed studies which involved more than 200,000 children and found that children whose parents overly protect their children from negative things tend to make them more vulnerable to bullying.

"Although parental involvement, support and high supervision decrease the chances of children being involved in bullying, for victims - overprotection increased this risk. Children need support but some parents try to buffer their children from all negative experiences. In the process, they prevent their children from learning ways of dealing with bullies and make them more vulnerable", Professor Wolke said.
