More About Cyberbullying

 

Bullying is repetitious, unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. Like bullying, cyberbullying can take many forms, but all instances of cyberbullying include repeated aggressive behavior online or on a digital platform. Both kids who are bullied and those who bully others may develop harmful or serious lasting problems.

If cyberbullying is the issue, then online/digital safety, education, and supervision is the solution.

Kids need:

  • A trusted adult to talk with
  • Online monitoring
  • Safety education
  • An advocate to intervene
  • Support
