  • The best and most obvious way to stop bullying in schools is for parents to change the way they parent their children at home. Of course, this is much easier said than done and everyone parents their children differently. Bullies, however, come from homes where physical punishment is used and children have been taught that physical violence is the way to handle problems and “get their way.” And in line with this, let’s not ignore the security of these children especially when they are at school. Therefore, you may check this site that will make your simple mobile phones to be transformed as your safety mobile savior. Try to check it here:

  • Cyber-bullying by Michael Sturgeon
  • As stated by cyberbullying.org, a situation when a child, tween or teen is repeatedly tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child or teenager using text messaging, email, instant messaging or any other type of digital technology is cyber-bullying.
  • Cyber-bullying is important because students can suffer in their school work and it could lead to psychological or emotional issues.
  • The intentional use of information and communication to support hostile behavior directed at an individual or a group constitutes as Cyber-bullying.
  • The actions that the cyber-bullies use are: sending harassing emails, Instant messages, text messages to their targets. Also Cyber-bullies create voting poll that allow other students to vote for the “ugliest”, “fattest”, etc. person.
  • Victims of cyber-bullying have lower self-esteems, increased suicidal tendencies, and a variety of emotional responses.
  • 74% of eight to eleven year olds reported that bullying and teasing occurred at their school. A study of a two month period showed that 25% of girls and 11% of boys were cyber-bullied.
  • What can you do? School administrators can access their situation and voice their schools rules on harassment and the seriousness of cyber-bullying. Parents can educate their children on the signs of cyber-bullying and encourage them to tell them if there is cyber-bullying happening.
  • In California, they have passed a law that gives the school administrator the authority to discipline students for bullying offline or online.
  • Cyber-bullying is a continuation of regular bullying but has adapted to the 21st century. Cyber-bullying is more hurtful to their victim because the bullies don’t have to be face-to-face to let the hurt out.
