The purpose of this study was to examine effects of self-control and social support (e.g., parents, peer, teachers) on bullying victimization and perpetration among early adolescents. 377 youths (11-14 years of age) from elementary and middle schools participated in the study. The data from these subjects were analyzed using the SPSS 18.0. The results of this study may be summarized as follows. There were differences by gender on bullying victimization and perpetration. Among boys, the factors influencing bullying victimization were social support from close friends and self-control. Among girls, the factors influencing bullying victimization were social support from parents and self-control. The factor influencing bullying perpetration was self-control for both boys and girls.
