Understanding Cyberbullying

 

1.3 FORMS THAT CYBERBULLYING CAN TAKE

 

1.3.1Cyberbullying takes different forms, some of which are harder to detect or less obviously associated with bullying than others. Schools should already have policies and practices in place for dealing with some of these.

 

Threats and intimidation

1.3.2Serious threats can be sent to both staff and pupils by mobile phone, email, via comments on websites, social networking sites or message boards.

 

Harassment or stalking

1.3.3Repeated, prolonged, unwanted texting, whether it is explicitly offensive or not, is a form of harassment. Online stalking (sometimes referred to as ‘cyberstalking’), where a person’s online activities are constantly monitored, can cause psychological harm and fear. Previously safe and enjoyable environments can be experienced as threatening, and online activity may become a source of anxiety.

How Parents can handle cyberbullying on Facebook? | Parenting Information

It seems that with all of the new technology that is available it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep tabs on all of the activities of kids and teens. Teenagers love using social media sites like Facebook, but there are still a lot of dangers that exist parents should be aware of with social media sites.

Stand up to Cyberbullying


When you hear the word "cyberbullying," the victim and bully come to mind. What about the bystanders? These silent witnesses play a big part in the vicious circle of bullying. That's why speaking up has never been more important.

Cyberbullying: a serious problem, but not an epidemic | SafeKids.com | Cyberbullying, it's not a game! It's your Life!!! | Scoop.it

This is an updated version of post that first appeared on SafeKids.com in 2009.

by Larry Magid

 

I’m glad that media outlets and public officials are shining a light on cyberbullying and bullying in general. It’s important to pay attention to this serious problem, but we need to keep it in perspective. As bad as it is, cyberbullying is not an epidemic and it’s not killing our children.

 

Yes, it’s probably one of the more widespread youth risks on the Internet and yes there are some well publicized horrific cases of cyberbullying victims who have committed suicide, but let’s look at this in context.

What if preventing bullying is as simple as paying closer attention? The research indicates this may be the case.

 

Bullying is one of the biggest issues in education today. There are articles in professional journals and parenting magazines about it. There are news stories, it seems almost weekly, about it. There are websites and organizations dedicated to fighting it. There is plenty of advice about preventing it.

 

===> There's even legislation against it. This month, New Jersey passed an anti-bullying law that's been called the toughest in the nation. <===

Dieses Projekt möchte mithilfe einer Online-Befragung zum Thema "Ich, du, wir - wie gehen wir miteinander um?" innerhalb der Klasse oder Jahrgangsstufe dem Thema Mobbing in der Schule auf die Spur kommen: Wie gehen Schülerinnen und Schüler miteinander um, gibt es gar Fälle von Mobbing auch an unserer Schule?

 

Auf Grundlage der durch die Schülerinnen und Schüler selbst erhobenen anonymen Daten kann die Situation in der Klasse analysiert werden.

 

Anschließend werden Maßnahmen vorgeschlagen, die einen guten Umgang miteinander sichern und somit Mobbing verhindern helfen oder aber bestehende Mobbingprozesse beenden.

What to do if your child's being bullied

What to do if your child's being bullied | Cyberbullying, it's not a game! It's your Life!!! | Scoop.it

Tips and useful websites that can help...

Tell your child that bullying is not acceptable behaviour and that you will do what you can to get the bullying to stop.


Listen to your child's fears, reassure your child that it is not their fault and that this is not something that they will face alone.
Let them know that you will help them.
Don't pressurise them to talk to you.


Give them ideas of who else they could talk to - a relative, a teacher, your GP or ChildLine on tel: 0800 1111.
Help them build up their confidence.
Praise and encourage them.
Talk to his/her teacher and try to work with the school on tackling the problem.
Keep a bullying report - keep records and written details of incidents and if known, the names of perpetrators.
Do not accept that repeated verbal abuse is teasing and not bullying - the important difference to note is whether it is distressing your child.
Ensure that the school take action and follow up each key step until you are satisfied.
Finally, keep notes of meetings, copies of letters and record details of phone calls.

Cyberbullying occurs when new technologies like the internet or mobile phones are used to bully a person or a group of people. Like other types of bullying it is meant to hurt, humiliate or make the victim feel small.

 

Unlike traditional bullying, cyberbullying is often more hurtful because there is no way to escape from it because we are always surrounded by communications technology.
