Common Sense Media
During media center Mrs. Wolf is having conversations with the students in regards to cyber bullying and being safe on the internet.
Here are some key points:
Cyber bullying is using the internet, cell phones, video game systems, online social networks or other technology to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person.
•Cyber bullying can be an extension of bullying that children are already receiving at school, and cyber bullying can be even more emotionally destructive.
Since cyber bullying can occur anywhere and at any time, kids who are cyber bullied often have no safe retreat from the bully, even while at home.
•Cyber bullying can occur 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
•Many teens believe that their peers cyber bully because they think that it’s a joke, not realizing the overwhelmingly negative impact that it might have on the victim.
•Cyber bullying can escalate into actual violence if it is not properly handled.
•Remember to speak openly to children about cyber bullying. Some children do not report cyber bullying to their parents because they fear that their internet privileges will be taken from them. A frank talk to children about the issues involving cyber bullying is the best way to be sure that children are safe in cyberspace.
