What is the correlation between bullying, fighting, & other confrontational behavior & children who
come from large families?
Not much. Bullying is done due to prejudice, children born and raised by mean parents, Children who may have a mental illness, these are the causes of bullying, not coming from a big family. I studied in some American schools in Europe, and was bullied because I was "Japanese" according to them. Another girl was bullied because she was a jew.
WRONG-family size correlates to bullying. Children from large families have to FIGHT for space, parental resources, etc. This behavior carries over to their dealings w/other children. Children from large families tend to be confrontational........
It doesn't have to be from a large family. Bullies come from any size family. In my life I knew several bullies. A couple came from only child families. Bullies come from all size families.
The bullies I knew came from large families of 6-more children. Only children are seldom, if ever, bullies.....nah uh......Children from large families simply LOVE TO FIGHT....
Grace, if you already know the answer, why do you bother to ask? Maybe something more innate needs to be resolved, a question you avoid and hide behind big families. Or perhaps you really are passionate about family planning.
Kids from large families LOVE to fight, it's in their nature.They act & think in PACKS. I've seen this all my life. Kids from large families don't play like other children.EVERYTHING is a fight w/them.They're the school bullies par excellence...
The large family environment is a crowded environment. Couple the crowded environment w/scarcity. With crowding, the large family environment has scarcity of parental, socioeconomic, & personal resources. There is intense sibling competition in the large family environment whether it is for parental, socioeconomic, &/or even personal resources. They have to fight for the scant parental recognition they receive, space, & for the few rudiments they will get.
The large family environment breeds intense sibling rivalry & even jealousy as some children will be paid attention to while others simply are discarded or even falter. Children in large families must fight if they are going to survive. Children have to learn to navigate their quite precarious home environment very early in the game as no one else is going to do it for themselves. The attitude of the large family environment is to swim or sink, if one swims, good or if one sinks, well, that is too %^&% bad.
Because children in large families are raised in a harsh environment, they had adopted a very cynical attitude. They believe that everything is tough & it is them vs. the rest of the world. They were used to fighting, even bullying behavior in the home so they use that behavior in their relationships w/other children. They are the children to use fighting as a prime premise in "getting along" w/other children. They are used to roughhousing & aren't used to constructive, even intellectual play that children in small families are used to. Children from large families tend to be rougher & more cruder in approaching other children as reflective in their home environment.
Bullying is usually an (ongoing issue) one has with another person or group. Whereas a fight or confrontation can be a specific one-time instance of demanding respect or retaliation for being wronged.
There's a difference between two kids fighting because one stepped on the others foot or tried to "sweet talk" their girlfriend/boyfriend versus daily taunting, pranks, threats, and physical abuse just because it's "fun" for the bully or bullies.
Bullies enjoy terrorizing their victims!
