Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying happens on web sites, in chat rooms, in blogs, through e-mail, on voicemail, and through text messages. 

The definition of cyberbullying is: The use of different forms of technology to hurt, embarass, or ridicule a person. 

A cyberbully can be a schoolmate, former friend, or complete stranger. Here are some steps you can take to prevent cyberbullying: 

  • Ignore the bully. You do not have to respond to a bully’s text or e-mail. 
  • Block messages. Block e-mail addresses, screen names, or phone numbers. 
  • Save threatening e-mails or texts  to help identify the bully. 
  • If threats are made, ask an adult to call the police.
