ABSTRACT
The present study investigated attitudes of children, parents,and teachers towards bullying, 100 children (50 male; 50 female), 100 parents (59 fathers; 41 mothers )and 100 teachers (43 male; 57 female ) responded on questionnaire i.e., Parental Attitudes to Bullying Scale and the Children's Attitudes to Bullying Scale. Findings depicted that children were largely sympathetic towards victims; most of the parents were found to be largely sympathetic towards victims, supportive of intervention, but less understanding towards bullies; whereas teachers showed best understanding of all three dimensions. There was little association between parental and children's attitudes, although there was significant association between teachers' and parents attitudes on victim and bullies subscales. Gender-wise significant differences were also found on some subscales. Mothers were more sympathetic than fathers towards victims, but there were no gender differences among sample of children and teachers.
