Cyber Bullying

MAKE IT STOP!

What is cyber bulling to you?

Being sent an abusive or threatening text message, or seeing nasty comments about yourself on a website can be really upsetting. This code gives you seven important tips to protect yourself and your friends from getting caught up in cyber bullying and advice on to how to report it if happens.

REMEMBER

That when you send a message to someone you cannot see the impact that your words or images may have on the other person. That is why it is important to always show respect to people and be careful what you say online or what images you send.

What you think is a joke may really hurt someone else. Always ask permission before you take a photo of someone.

If you receive a nasty message or picture about someone else, do not forward it. You could be assisting a bully, and be accused of cyberbullying. You could also be breaking the law.
