Research subject: the expression of experienced jeering of forms 5-10 (age 12-15) adolescents who go in for sports, who do not and who belong to risk group and jeering implemented by themselves. Research aim: to reveal the influence of gender, out-of-school activities factors (attendance of sports and children day centre) on the frequency of experienced jeering and their jeering at coevals by adolescents of forms 5-10. People being researched were given a questionnaire, prepared based on the United Kingdom York city Jeering questionnaire for schoolboys/girls. In the interview carried out in year 2008 411 adolescents of forms 5-10 (age 12-15) participated from various Lithuanian schools. Conclusions: 1. By analyzing the frequency of experienced jeering among adolescents of forms 5-10 it was determined that it does not depend on gender. The frequency of experienced jeering depends on out-of-school activity character and age factors. Sports and age factors lower the frequency of experienced jeering - those who go in for sports experience jeering more rarely than those who do not go in for sports and risk group adolescents, and adolescents of senior forms (forms 8-10) experience jeering more rarely than adolescents of younger forms (forms 5-7). 2. Jeering at other classmates is weakly influenced by gender and age factors. Girls state that they jeer at other coevals more rarely than boys do and older adolescents of forms 8-10 do that more rarely than younger adolescents of forms 5-7 do. 3. When analyzing the expression of jeering experienced by a person and frequency of his jeering at other coevals, weak linear dependence of these phenomena on age (forms 5-7) and out-of school activity (groups of adolescents who go in for sports) was found.
This document was selected because it provides information about the relation between after school activities and the frequency of bullying.
