The goal of this research was to examine the prevalence of peer and electronic violent behavior among middle school children. The study examined each participant's role in peer and electronic bullying; perpetrator, neutral, passive or active victim. The gender differences regarding peer and electronic violence were also examined. The study investigated the effect of committed peer violence and experienced peer and electronic violence upon committing electronic violence. Research has been conducted on 107 participants, middle school students. Data were collected within groups of students who had parental permission for participation. Participants completed the School violence questionnaire and the Electronic violence questionnaire. The results have shown seldom occurrence of electronic violence in comparison with the peer violence. Boys tend to participate more often than girls in violent behavior both as victims and as perpetrators. Regression analysis has shown that committed peer violence and experienced electronic violence were significant predictors of committed electronic violence, while experienced peer violence was not.
