What is cyberbullying presentation

  • The best way to deal or ignore bullying or cyberbullying is to let every kid know right away that you won’t deal with it. And it's important to educate kids. Kids need to understand the reasons behind bullying. They need to know that they should never blame the victim. They need to know it is not their fault when they are bullied, and how they should handle the bullying if it occurs. I am a parent and I'm worried and I don't want that any kid to experience this. 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 a 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.

    One day you like someone. The next day you don’t. Angry, you say something or post something online. It gets passed around quickly and easily. So now, everybody knows about it and everybody talks about it in school.

    When kids are intentionally and repeatedly mean to one another using cell phones or the Internet, it’s called cyberbullying. Sometimes kids can handle cyberbullying and not get too upset. Other times, it can make kids feel angry, frustrated, sad, or afraid.

Two girls who are left out overhear the plans. Angry, they plan their revenge. The girls make a “We Hate Sondra Jones” Web site. They say that anyone invited to the party should not go. They tell everyone in school the site’s address. The girls invite everyone to add new reasons why they hate Sondra and to spread ugly rumors about her. When Sondra hears about the site, she gets a sick feeling in her stomach. Unable to ignore it, she checks the site often. Each day she finds a new nasty comment or joke about her. She feels hurt and powerless to defend herself. Sondra is too embarrassed to go to school and tells her parents she is sick.
    If you were Sondra’s friend, what advice would you give her?

The e-mails come every few minutes. “I’m hiding in your house using a wireless Internet connection. You’ll never find me. But I’ll find you.” Frozen with fear, Andrew can’t think what to do.
