Victoria Kirby's insight:

Cyberbullying is growing rapid these days with the internet and social media websites taking off. Most people don't know that cyberbullying is happening all over the place. When I was a kid, I had to worry about bullying face to face, and I think I rather take the bullying face to face then have it be on the web. Bullying face to face is harder to do. You have nothing to hide behind, you are being mean straight to that person! With cyberbullying you are hiding behind a computer, you think you are being a tough guy but you are not. When something gets said on a social media site about a person, more people are likely to jump in and make fun of them as well, rather than just that one or two kids bullying face to face. People feel safe behind a computer screen. The people they are hurting feel alone, unsafe (it happens in their "own home",  they don't want to tell their parents, they are emotional abused and will have low self - esteem. 

 

The biggest thing about any bullying is that we need to be informed! We need to ways to take preventative measures and get involved in our childrens' life whethere they like it or not. The world is cruel these days and we need to take a stand and help people! Don't let bullying take the one you love! There are many websites and presentations to go to and keep informed  and help your community and loved ones. Don't let you or your loved ones be a victim of cyberbullying. Know what your children are up to on the internet, have limited access to the internet, and makre sure you talk to your children about the safety of the internet. There are many things to do to prevent cyberbullying, so get up and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
