  • It can be so heartbreaking for parents to see their children being treated badly in a place where they are supposed to feel safe. We recommend that you continue to report any incidents of bullying to the school. I am a parent and I'm worried and I don't want anyone to experience threatening cases like this especially my kids. As a way of helping everyone especially the parents, who still find it quite hard to manage issues like this, I found this great application which featured safety app which gets me connected to a Safety Network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids with just a press of a Panic Button.

  • Welcome to our Parent Power night. I hope you will find the evening helpful and informative. Mrs. Fleming is very proactive and very much against bullying, so as soon as she heard of a student at Mount Lebanon having a problem with cyber bullying we got together and planned this presentation. I have no real first hand knowledge of this. My children came along before this was an issue. I do know from them that Face book and My Space should be areas of concern for all parents.
  • Read the slide- Click for audio then read the slide “ What makes cyber bullying so dangerous… is that anyone can practice it without having to confront the victim. You don’t have to be strong or fast, simply equipped with a cell phone or a computer and a willingness to terrorize” (King, 2006)
  • Through Email Instant messaging In a chat room On a website Through digital messages or images sent to a cell phone
  • Direct cyber bullying is messages directly to others, usually children or youth Cyber bullying by proxy (indirect cyber bullying) is using others to help cyber bully a victim, with or with out the accomplice’s consent. Cyberbullying by proxy is when a cyberbully gets someone else to do their dirty work. Most of the time they are unwitting accomplices and don&apos;t know that they are being used by the cyberbully. Cyberbullying by proxy is the most dangerous kind of cyberbullying because it often gets adults involve in the harassment and people who don&apos;t know they are dealing with a kid or someone they know .
  • Flaming and flame wars- online “fights” using angry, vulgar language Harassment – repeatedly sending offensive, rude, and insulting messages Denigration – posting information about another that is derogatory and untrue Impersonation – breaking into an email account and sending vicious and embarrassing materials to others
  • Impersonation – breaking into an email account and sending vicious and embarrassing materials to others Outing and trickery – sharing someone’s secrets or embarrassing information, or tricking someone into revealing such and forwarding it Exclusion/Ostracism – blocking someone from buddy lists, chat rooms, etc.
  • Cyber stalking – repeatedly sending a messages that include threats of harm or of intimidating, or engaging in other online activities that make someone fear for their safety Happy slapping – slapping someone usually a stranger, recording it, and posting the image online Happy slapping, a fairly new method of bullying, targets unsuspecting victims by capturing these crimes on video or cellphones and uploading them online. Imagine, waiting for the bus, minding ones own business, and without warning or provocation, a perfect stranger walks up and slaps a person in the face. It’s called “happy slapping” and it has become a disturbing new trend.
  • Anonymous - Cyber bullies can pick on anyone, even those more confident and popular than themselves. Cyber bullies can even pick on children older and bigger than them because of the anonymous nature of the internet. If a cyber bully wants to hurt another person, the internet gives them the perfect vehicle to do so. Accessibility –Over 97% of adolescents use the internet, with over half of these using the internet each day 75% of online teenagers use IM, 48% daily 45% of adolescents have cell phones: 33% communicate via text messaging young girls more likely to be online than boys and more likely to IM Bystanders – messages and images can be distributed quickly to a very wide audience. Girls are twice as likely as boys to be cyber bullies as well as be targeted by cyber bullies. Boys tend to physically bully others while girls use emotional methods, which can be perfectly carried out over the computer. Many children who are the victims of cyber bullying never know who is bullying them. Cyber bullying is not restricted to school either, it can happen anywhere children have access to computers or cell phones. Bullying used to be confined to school, but with cyber bullying can now reach children anywhere
  • Talk specifically about cyber bullying and encourage your child to tell you immediately if he or she is the victim of cyber bullying, cyberstalking, or other illegal or troublesome on-line behavior.  Explain that cyber bullying is harmful and unacceptable behavior.  Outline your expectations for responsible online behavior and make it clear that there will be consequences for inappropriate behavior.
  • Although adults must respect the privacy of children and youth, concerns for your child’s safety may sometimes override these privacy concerns. .
  • If the cyber bullying is coming through e-mail or a cell phone, it may be possible to block future contact from the cyberbully. Of course, the cyberbully may assume a different identity and continue the bullying. Contact your school. If the cyber bullying is occurring through your school district’s Internet system, school administrators have an obligation to intervene. Even if the cyber bullying is occurring off campus, make your school administrators aware of the problem. They may be able to help you resolve the cyber bullying or be watchful for face-to-face bullying. Consider contacting the cyberbully’s parents. These parents may be very concerned to learn that their child has been cyber bullying others, and they may effectively put a stop to the bullying.  On the other hand, these parents may react very badly to your contacting them. So, proceed cautiously. If you decide to contact a cyberbully’s parents, communicate with them in writing — not face-to-face. Present proof of the cyber bullying (e.g., copies of an e-mail message) and ask them to make sure the cyber bullying stops.
  • Sending inappropriate language may violate the “Terms and Conditions” of e-mail services, Internet Service Providers, web sites, and cell phone companies. Consider contacting these providers and filing a complaint. If the cyber bullying is coming through e-mail or a cell phone, it may be possible to block future contact from the cyberbully. Of course, the cyberbully may assume a different identity and continue the bullying. Consider contacting an attorney in cases of serious cyber bullying. In some circumstances, civil law permits victims to sue a bully or his or her parents in order to recover damages. Contact the police if cyber bullying involves acts such as: Threats of violence Extortion Obscene or harassing phone calls or text messages Harassment, stalking, or hate crimes Child pornography If you are uncertain if cyber bullying violates your jurisdiction’s criminal laws, contact your local police, who will advise you.
