More bullies than non-bullies live without two biological parents; some live with extended family or foster families. Many do not receive a lot attention at home causing anger in some children. Some kids live in bad areas and are used to violence around them and use this against other children, leading to guns in school.

Children who experienced abuse are also more impulsive, disorganized and districtabilie which affects their ability to perform at school.
