Parental knowledge of child-reported bully-victim and sexual harassment problems in seven Canadian schools: Implications for policy and program development
This paper reports on the involvement of parents in addressing the self reported bully-victim and sexual harassment problems of their children at school. The findings are based upon data from a large, multi-school Canadian study investigating bully-victim problems, sexual harassment and racial discrimination in grades four – twelve. In this 2005 CPHA study, 562 parent surveys were matched with child surveys to allow for comparison of parent-child perceptions of peer relationship problems. One hundred and forty-two school staff also participated.
