Bad parenting and bullying could be examples to why a child could be stressed and out casted enough to perform such an action as killing other people. When given the possibility these young people can, in the moment of frustration, exploit the law in such a way that it leads to murder, for example through school shooting. One of the main reasons to why such events as school shooting does not appear to happen as often in other countries might be because the USA is the only country with so loose weapon-laws, where it is relatively easy to get your hands on a deadly firearm.

Bullying is a problem that affects schools all over the world, although this paper focuses on research and studies done solely in the United States of America. According to Delia Carroll Campfield, who has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, “American schools harbor approximately 2.1 million bullies and 2.7 million of their victims, 1 in 7 Students in Grades K-12 are either a bully or a victim of bullying, 56% of students have Bienstock-2 personally witnessed some type of bullying at school, 15% of all school absenteeism is directly related to fears of being bullied at school, and 71% of students report incidents of bullying as a problem at their school.” (Campfield, 2008, 50) Adolescents who have parents that exhibit negative parental characteristics are more likely to engage in face-to-face harmful bullying, cyber bullying, intimidation bullying without harm, and indirect bullying than adolescents who do not have parents that exhibit negative parental characteristics.
