“Bullying and Victimization among Children Raised by Grandparents”

Edwards, Oliver W. GrandFamilies: The Contemporary Journal of Research, Practice and Policy 2, no. 2: 4.

This study looks at some of the emotional difficulties of CRBTG (children raised by their grandparents), whose unique familial situation causes them to experience increased bullying by peers and also engage in greater degrees of bullying behavior themselves. The authors suggest a structured home and academic support system that emphasizes social skills and healthy emotional coping methods, as ways to curve both the victimization of and patterns of bullying behavior in CRBTG.
