Cyber bullying in the News http://www.nwfdailynews.com/news/photo-36722-cyberbullying-teens.html http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Parenting/girls-teen-suicide-calls-attention-cyberbullying/story?id=9685026 http://www.walb.com/Global/story.asp?S=13846910
What do you do if you are a victim? 1) Don't reply. 2) You did not do anything to deserve this! 3) Save the evidence! Print out anything you can, with all URLs, date, time stamps, etc. Take screen shots if possible. Save text messages. 4) Ask for help. Tell an adult you trust. 5) If you are concerned about your safety, report it to the police. http://www.walb.com/Global/story.asp?S=13846910
Don't be a silent bystander!
A bystander can have just as much affect on a situation as an active bully.
When bystanders stand up for a target it is one of the most effective means of stopping bullying. Support from bystanders gives the target confidence. It shows the bully that the target has friends who care, and that what the bully is doing is not cool. http://cyberbullyinghelp.com/2010/08/11/helplessness-of-the-bystander-bully/
