Stop Cyber Bullying

Cyberbullying occurs when a child or teen uses the Internet, emails, text messages, instant messaging, social media websites, online forums, chat rooms, or other digital technology to harass, threaten, or humiliate another child or teen. Unlike traditional bullying, cyberbullying doesn’t require physical strength or face-to-face contact and isn’t limited to just a handful of witnesses at a time.

What you can do:
1. Get help—talk to a trusted adult, such as a parent, teacher, or guardian.
2. Don’t respond to any messages no matter how hurtful or untrue.
3. Don’t seek revenge by becoming a cyberbully yourself.
4. Block the cyberbully’s email address and cellphone number.
5. Don’t blame yourself—the cyberbully is the person with the problem, not you.
