This article discusses cyberbullying and ways to cope. Bullying is defined in the article as "the deliberate and harmful repetitive harassment of someone by an aggressor when a power balance exists." Cyberbullying is not much different. What sets it apart is that the bully may be more computer savy and can be anonymous. It also can make the victim more exposed. There are many effects of bullying including anxiety, depression, and even suicide. How should victims respond if they are cyberbullied? Having a solid relationship and maintaining effective communication with your child is a start. Sometimes though this is not enough. A child may be afraid to disclose cyberbullying for fear of losing computer privileges. In school kids may also turn to peers who have leadership skills on how to handle a bullying situation. One solution to the whole bullying problem is identifying the cause. Why does a child become a bully? According to the article "Traditional criminology theory states that bullying can be a learned behavior." Key to battling bullying is developing a positive environment where kids are educated in both traditional and cyberbullying interventions. Knowing how to report, respond and effectively deal with bullying is central to stopping it.
