Prevent Cyberbullying

Be Aware of What Your Kids are Doing Online

A child can be bullied, bully others, or witness bullying. Parents, teachers, and other adults may not be aware of all the digital media and apps that a child is using. The more digital platforms that a child uses, the more opportunities there are for being exposed to potential cyberbullying. 

 

Warning Signs a Child is Being Cyber-bullied or is Cyberbullying Others

Many of the warning signs that cyberbullying is occurring happen around a child’s use of their device. Some of the warning signs that a child may be involved in cyberbullying are: 

  • Noticeable increases or decreases in device use, including texting.

  • A child exhibits emotional responses (laughter, anger, upset) to what is happening on their device.

  • A child hides their screen or device when others are near, and avoids discussion about what they are doing on their device.

  • Social media accounts are shut down or new ones appear.

  • A child starts to avoid social situations, even those that were enjoyed in the past.

  • A child becomes withdrawn or depressed, or loses interest in people and activities.
