Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), are stressors that are experienced during the childhood ages. This cross sectional study examined if adolescents who were exposed to ACEs were more likely to exhibit one form of bullying behaviors. We used nationally representative observations from the 2016 National Survey of children’s health (NSCH). We observed that adolescents with a higher number of ACEs exposure are more likely to show one form of bullying behavior. The findings of these study are important, as early identification of children that have been exposed to ACEs may result in active prevention of bullying behaviors.
