    • Cyberbullying
      By Sarah Swearingen
    • Definition
      "Cyberbullying" is when a child, preteen or teen is
      tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed
      or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using
      the Internet, interactive and digital technologies or mobile
      phones. It has to have a minor on both sides, or at least have
      been instigated by a minor against another minor. Once
      adults become involved, it is plain and simple cyber-
      harassment or cyber-stalking. Adult cyber-harassment or
      cyber-stalking is NEVER called cyberbullying (Parry).
    • How it Works
      There are two kinds of cyberbullying, direct attacks
      (messages sent to your kids directly) and cyberbullying by
      proxy (using others to help cyberbully the victim, either with
      or without the accomplice's knowledge). Because
      cyberbullying by proxy often gets adults involved in the
      harassment, it is much more dangerous (Parry).
    • Direct Attack Examples
      Instant Messaging/Text Messaging
      Stealing Passwords
      Sending Pictures through E-mail and Cell Phones
      Internet Polling
      Interactive Gaming
      Sending Malicious Code
      Sending Porn and Other Junk E-mail
    • Cyberbullying by Proxy
      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'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
      involved in the harassment and people who don't know they
      are dealing with a kid or someone they know (Parry).
    • Cyberbullying by Proxy Examples
      "Warning" or "Notify Wars" are an example of cyberbullying
      by proxy. Kids click on the warning or notify buttons on their
      IM screen or e-mail or chat screens, and alert the ISP or
      service provider that the victim has done something that
      violates their rules. If the victim receives enough warnings or
      notifications, they can lose their account. The service
      providers are aware of this abuse, and often check and see if
      the warning were justified. But all the cyberbully has to do is
      make the victim angry enough to say something rude or
      hateful back. Then, BINGO! they warn them, making it look
      like the victim had started it. In this case, the ISP or service
      provider is the innocent accomplice of the cyberbully
    • Cyberbullying
      It is so important to protect and educate young people on
      using the Internet and to provide all users with a safe
      experience. How do you address “cyber-bullying”? Do you
      look at how individuals function in their family, school and
      work communities, how people deal with drama or politics,
      or how they treat others and present themselves? Or do you
      look at the parenting and teaching skills being presented in
      these individual lives (Cyberbullying Research Center, 2010)?
    • Prevention
      To begin a successful decline in cyber-bullying education and
      interventions need to focus on building empathy, identifying
      escalation and techniques for stopping the cycle of abuse.
      Environments at home and school need to be one where
      people don’t get validated for negative attention and where
      they don’t see relationship drama as part of normal life
      (Collier, 2011).
    • Prevention
      The Internet is not the problem here, as much as people
      think it is, it is just a tool in an ongoing battle for attention,
      validation, and status. Unless teachers and parents find
      effective ways of getting to the root of this problem, at home
      and in the classroom, the Internet will just continue to be
      used to reinforce what is pervasive offline. Cyber-bullying
      didn't come from out of nowhere, it is not new, and it is
      something school counselors, teachers, parents and risk-
      prevention practitioners among us do understand (Collier,
    • Prevention
      When it comes to cyber-bullying we need to take the focus
      off of technology and put it on the social and environmental
      conditions that give rise to social cruelty offline as well as
      online. To defeat cyber-bullying, we need to create home and
      school cultures that encourage critical thinking about the
      right and wrong kinds of attention, validation, and status-
      seeking; teach perspective-taking; and cultivate self-worth,
      resilience, and a sense of belonging (Collier, 2011).
