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.
