Are parents partly to blame for students who choose bullying?

‘Popolin’ spoke with Jeremy Mercieca, a teacher who works hard to fight the reality of bullying in the school where he teaches.

Mercieca said that the negative phenomenon of bullying is not a small problem, however through continuous awareness, he believes that bullying is being better controlled. He spoke on ongoing various activities and talks in schools to assist children generate their feelings on the subject and stressed that those who adopt this negative behaviour want to show their superiority.

Mercieca added that when a student adopts this behavior, parents or those upbringing children are participants in the cause that permits a student to make this choice. Many times, he said, the student is permitted to do want he wants at home and therefore children believe that they have a right to be superior to other students.
