Format: Article

Summary: Reviews the literature on parents’ influence on adolescent cyberbullying both as victims and perpetrators. Findings show that parental warmth is associated with lower cyberbullying both as victims and perpetrators; parental control is weakly associated with youth involvement; collaborative strategies can be effective but this varies by ethnicity and gender. Results indicate that parental warmth supports adolescent disclosure of online activity.
