					   Cyberbullying
Old Problem, New Playground
       Bullies are no longer
       restricted to the school
       yard.




They are often online,
out of the sight and
earshot of teachers and
parents.
         Cyberbullying
•When a child, preteen or teen
•is tormented, threatened, harassed,
humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise
targeted
•by another child, preteen or teen
•using the Internet, interactive and
digital technologies or mobile phones.

 For the Sake of Clarity

Cyberbullying has a minor on both
 sides or at least starts that way.
Once adults become involved, it is
cyber-harassment or cyberstalking.
   Adult cyber-harassment or
   cyberstalking is NOT called
         cyberbullying.

                       http://www.stopcyberbullying.org/
Nearly 60 percent of children state
 that someone has made mean or
   hurtful comments about them
              online…
…and more than four out of 10 children
indicate that this kind of harassment
has happened to them more than once,
according to an i-SAFE survey of 1,500
students.
 How Are Kids Cyberbullied?
Cyber bullies:
 Pretend they are other people online to
  trick others
 Spread lies and rumors about victims
 Trick people into revealing personal
  information
 Post pictures of victims without their
  consent

    How Are Kids Cyberbullied?
There are two kinds of cyberbullying:
direct attacks (messages sent to your kids
directly)
cyberbullying by proxy (using others to help
cyberbully the victim, either with or without the
accomplice's knowledge).

Because cyberbullying by proxy often gets adults
involved in the harassment, it is much more
dangerous.

   How Can This Happen?


When teens were asked why they think
others cyberbully, 81 percent said that
     cyberbullies think it’s funny.

    How Can This Happen?
Cyber bullies:
 Don’t think it’s a big deal
 Don’t think about the consequences
 Are encouraged by friends
 Think everybody cyberbullies
 Think they won’t get caught

     Effects of Cyberbullying
Youth who are cyberbullied report feeling
angry, hurt, embarrassed, or scared. These
emotions can cause victims to react in ways
such as:
Seeking revenge on the bully
Avoiding friends and activities
Cyberbullying back



      National Crime Prevention Council website - http://www.ncpc.org/cyberbullying
One of the most threatening aspects
of being a victim of cyberbullying is
that…




                …You can’t see the bully
                    and you often don’t
                   even know who it is.
Cybersafety is Everybody’s Business



 The fight against cyberbullying needs the
cooperation of the schools, parents, and the
            children all together.
        What Can You Do?
A victim of cyberbullying can:
 Block communication with the
  cyberbully
 Delete messages without reading
  them
 Report the problem to an Internet
  service provider or website moderator

          What Can You Do?
 The anonymity that seems to go with
being online is a big help to cyberbullies
        but they can be found.

 If you are cyberbullied and decide you
 want help, save all communication with
   the cyberbully and talk to a parent,
teacher, police officer, or other adult you
                   trust.

        What Can You Do?
A victim of cyberbullying can:
 Talk to his/her friends about what is
  happening
 Refuse to pass along cyberbullying
  messages
 Tell his/her friends to stop
  cyberbullying
