Problems in the Media
By: Clare Rice
Why Is This A Problem?
- 43% of kids have been bullied online
- 68% of teenagers agree that cyber bullying is a problem
- 58% of kids admit that someone has been mean or rude to them online
As soon as someone begins to cyber bully you, consult a parent or trusted adult.
GET AWAY FROM THE MEDIA! Remove yourself or ignore the person bullying you.
Tell an administrator or teacher at school.
Set your accounts on social media to private. Don't give out any personal information and don't have it listed on your account.
