Overprotective parents can make a kid a target of bullies

It’s no surprise that children who are abused or neglected are more likely to be bullies or victims of bullying, but youngsters with overprotective parents are also at increased risk of being bullied, according to a finding from a meta-analysis of 70 studies that included more than 200,000 children. In the studies analyzed, children of overprotective parents were 10% more likely be victims of bullying than other youngsters (P<0.01). (Source: Medpage Today)
