When people think of cyberbullying, they often think of tweens or teens sitting at the computer being tossed rude remarks. However, cyberbullying is not only limited to young people.

Published on February 15, 2016

1 in 3 kids say they have been a victim of cyberbullying. That is a staggering statistic. If that 1 in 3 is not your child already, likely, it could be your child at some point.

What Is Cyberbullying? Cyberbullying is like playground bullying, but it’s done either online or with cell phones. It can take the form of individual harassment, public humiliation, or both. The viral nature of online life and cell phones makes sending humiliating or degrading messages, pictures, or videos simple and immediate. And anonymous. Screen names easily disguise bullies’ identities. Sometimes they can even pretend to be the victims, posting comments that look like the victims wrote them. Other times, the cyberbullying can take the form of direct threats — either physical … Continue reading



Young people think friends are more at risk
