Abstract: This study examined the associations among restorative parental discipline, family climate, parental support, moral emotions (empathy and shame), and the role of defenders in bullying. In total, 1224 adolescents were randomly selected (p = .5, q = 95%); 54.1% were female, and 45.9% males. The age of research participants ranged between 11 and 15 years old (M = 13.5, SD = 1.02). A model of structural equations was calculated. The results found restorative parental discipline, family climate, and parental support were directly and indirectly related to empathy, shame, and the adoption of defender role in bullying. A multi-group analyses indicated that gender did not moderate the developed model for restorative discipline but did have interesting results. Findings suggest that positive parenting is important to stimulate moral emotions and the defenders' role.
