Daily Mail, Lifestyle Daily and Psyhreg have published new research by NU faculty led by Dr. Mehmet Karakus. The research highlights the importance of parental support in both lowering bullying perpetration and victimisation and enhancing student self-esteem. Participants aged 11 to 17 years old were asked how often they had bullied someone or been bullied by someone in the past six months, had their self-esteem measured, and were asked how much their parents know about what they are doing and feeling to assess parental support.
