How to prevent Cyber Bullying?

To prevent cyber bullying you first must take action. If you see cyber bullying whilst online don't just be a by-stander. Confront the person being cyber bullied and talk to them about the issue. If you are uncomfortable about telling someone about this problem and decide not to tell them, it will only get worse. By telling a family member, a close friend or teacher they can help stop the cyber bullying.

How to find help?

There are many kids helplines available to talk to professional counsellors about your issue. These counsellors help victims of cyber bullying find their feet and feel good about themselves. Even if you just want to tell someone about your feelings the kids helpline can be beneficial. This helpline is open 24 hours, 7 days a week.

We care and we listen, anytime and for any reason.
