With reference to previous research on the stability of aggressive behaviour and inter-generational transmission of violence, we investigated the impact of active and passive experience with violence in the family on current experiences as actor, or victim in school. For this purpose, 660 juveniles (aged 13 to 18 years) reported twice within one-and-a-half years on a standardised questionnaire ... [Show full abstract] with five-point Likert-rating scales about experienced domestic violence in childhood and present violence proneness (i. e., acceptance of violent acts, being an actor, an co-actor, or a victim of violence). Victimisation rates as well as violent activities were moderately stable over the 18 months time period. Victimisation in early childhood was significantly related to current active involvement in violence. Reported domestic paternal violence and previous experience of violence were the best predictors of current juvenile violence. On the other hand paternal domestic violence combined with previous victimisation increased the risk of current victimisation in the context of peers.
