Extension of this risk model to the study of neighbourhood determinants of development suggests logically that children from high-risk neighbourhoods are more likely to show aggressive strategies in social adjustment than those living in low-risk neighbourhoods. g. Quinton, 1988). Similarly, Randall (1995) demonstrated that children living in a deprived urban area characterised by high levels of aggression developed pro-bully attitudes towards child victims who were perceived to be undesirable.

It would seem, therefore, that being in control does not necessarily lead to good long-term gains. FEMALE BULLYING Bullying has mostly been studied in boys because their forms of that behaviour are much more overtly aggressive. There is evidence, however, that bullying by girls is at least as common (Smith and Sharp, 1994), but it is less noticeable as its nature is more subtle and covert. Given the definition of bullying as an intent to cause harm, this allows for many varieties of aggression, and when a wide range is used then it is clear that many girls are both highly aggressive and bullying.

Positive reinforcement for an aggressive outburst was therefore continuous, and highly effective in teaching him that aggression can pay.
