This chapter investigates bullying involvement at home (sibling bullying)
and at school in a representative sample of children within families. Sibling
bullying was found to be widespread and more frequent than bullying by peers in school. Gender differences were small for
sibling bullying and contrary to previous evidence, not found for school bullying. Family and sibling type had some but only
a small impact on sibling or school bullying. While the prevalence of sibling bullying was high across adolescence, school
bullying reduced from 10-15 years of age. Contrary to some previous reports, not only physical but also relational bullying
reduced during adolescence in school. Involvement in bullying at home between siblings and victimisation at school was
related to increased unhappiness and more behaviour problems. We found a dose-response relationship with children who
were bullied both at home and at school had the strongest association with behaviour problems (up to 14 times increased)
and were the least happy compared to those not victimised in either context.
