Cyberbullying is never okay. It can lead to hurt feelings, misunderstandings, self harm and/or suicide. 20% of teens cyberbullied think about suicide, while 1 out of 10 attempt. Those numbers may seem "low", but making someone feel bad about themselves especially enough to make them want to die, is something I would consider low.
Self-Image and Identity (1)
Always be honest about who you are, especially online. Being someone else can not only hurt you, but it can hurt others. They might get close to you, but when they find out you were a fake, they would be hurt and upset. Never lie about your age, gender, or how you look because the truth will eventually be found out.
Self-Image and Identity (2)
When online, be careful of who you talk to. Just like you could be fake about who you are, others can too. Never have relationships with someone over the internet unless you meet them. When meeting for the first time, meet somewhere with many people, like a park. Never send anything personal like passwords/usernames, creditcard information, addresses, etc., to people you meet online.
