dc.description.abstract Bullying is a predominantly aggressive peer behavior among school-aged students. Previous studies have shown that empathy is negatively related to bullying behavior. However, the results are equivocal about the relationship between cognitive empathy and bullying behavior. Parenting style has been shown to be highly related to bullying behavior and empathy. However, few studies examine how empathy and parenting style interact in predicting bullying behavior. This study fills in the gap to examine the interaction between empathy and parenting style in bullying behavior. This study hypothesizes that parenting style moderates the role of cognitive empathy in predicting bullying behavior. This study also hypothesizes that gender, as a covariate, has an effect on the relationship between empathy and bullying behavior. en_US
