The Effects of Cyberbullying. Know the Signs and Get the Support You Need
We’ve all heard of the physical and verbal bullying happening in schools, but cyberbullying can happen at any time. Criminals target vulnerable children who may be susceptible to regular digital harassment, and use the Internet to bully, share personally identifiable information, or exploit an individual for their information. Although our connected devices, social media accounts, and smartphones are convenient, this 24-hour connectivity makes it difficult for victims to avoid conflict and harassment. If you suspect your child is being cyberbullied, research the signs and symptoms of cyberbullying, then start a conversation with your child and their teachers.
