  1. 1. By Emily Bosl
  2. 2.  Harassing,threatening, or targeting a person using technology.  Hurtful twitter or facebook updates  Impersonating another person  Posting personal information about someone Cyberbullyingis associated with young people, but when adults get involved there can be legal consequences  Cyber-harassment and cyber-stalking1 in 3 teens and 1 in 6 preteens have been the victims of cyberbullying
  3. 3.  Many kids are afraid to bring this up to adults because they are ashamed, embarrassed, and they don’t want to loose technology privileges. Signs to look for are:  Protective of their online life  Withdrawal and avoidance of friends and activities  Slipping grades, behavior changes Kids involved with severe cyber bullying can suffer from anxiety and depression. In some rare cases kids turn to suicide.
  4. 4.  Let the child know it isnt their fault, and make sure they know they are not alone Consult with the child before involving school officials Try to block the bully from the desired technology Talk to the child about the importance of privacy online
  5. 5.  If the bully is your own child, talk to them firmly about how their actions are hurting other people. Do not just wait for the problem to go away Use parental controls on the devices that the child was abusing Talk to the childs teacher and the school guidance counselor to see if taking anger management classes would be a possibility.  This can help improve social skills
  6. 6.   provides information from various government agencies on how kids, teens, young adults, parents, educators and others in the community can prevent or stop bullying.  Reminds teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone. An interactive, creative and relevant bullying prevention web site created for and by kids to raise awareness of bullying prevention in elementary schools.
  7. 7.  Bullying is an issue that I will not tolerate in my future elementary school classroom. There are several things I intend to do throughout the year to ensure that a caring classroom community is being upheld. This includes allowing my students to help come up with a list of classroom rules that they feel are appropriate for everyone to follow. I think involving them in this process will make them more conscious of their actions. We will also discuss what they think appropriate consequences will be if a rule is broken, especially when it comes to bullying. If bullying does occur I intend to diffuse the situation right away and make sure they know that bullying is not acceptable behavior. I think it is also important to review what is considered bullying, and the hurtful effects it can have on people several times throughout the year.
