The first comprehensive survey of 7,025 Chinese primary schoolchildren
found that 24% of respondents reported that they had sometimes physically
bullied another child. When children observed school bullying, 56% said
they immediately reported it to their teachers. Another 20% tried to stop the
bullying by approaching the bullies. The study also identified factors associated
with bullying. These included coming from an adverse psychosocial
background and having more contact with violent values through association
with deviant peers and exposure to the mass media. On the basis of the
research findings, potential methods of bullying intervention are discussed. (author’s abstract). Restorative practices are discussed among the interventions.
