Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study explored whether parental frustration mediated the association between food assistance and children's bullying and victimization. The sample (N = 34,579) was obtained from the 2016 National Survey of Children's Health and included parents and guardians of children, 6 to 17 years old. Caregivers receiving food assistance risk experiencing parental frustration (β = .16, p < .001), which was positively associated with children's bullying victimization (β = .06, p < .001) and perpetration (β = .03, p < .001). Nurse practitioners play a critical role in providing needed services for children and families of low income who must rely on food assistance.
