Cyberbullying


Cyberbullying isn’t a very nice thing to happen to you. But, first, what is cyber bullying? This video will explain it all. (We made this ourselves!)

Thanks, but I’d rather skip this bit.

If your school or parents block YouTube, try watching the video below:

Tips on how to deal with cyber-bullying

There are many ways that you can deal with cyberbullying. You can:

  • Tell a parent, guardian or teacher
  • If it gets very serious, you can report it to the police. (We recommend getting in touch with your school first!

All social media networks will have a support page (usually listed as support.example.com or help.example.com. Facebook’s one is facebook.com/help.)

Tips on going on social media

  • Stick to the age limits. Most social media platforms will have a minimum age limit (usually 13.) Don’t lie about your age because the age limits are set for a reason.
  • Think before you post. If you’re posting a picture of someone else, make sure you have their permission (If they took it with you, they’ll obviously say yes.) But if it’s a mugshot, ask for their permission first even if they don’t go on that social media platform.
