How Common is Cyber Bullying?

Since technology has become more popular and useful, many kids and young people have started using it more often. Unfortunately, not everyone uses technology for good reasons. According to research done in 2011, 9 percent of students in grades 6 through 12 have experienced cyber bullying. That may not seem like a lot of students, but the number could actually be bigger than that! That number really should be zero!

What Happens if You are Being Cyber Bullied?

If you become a victim of cyber bullying, remember that it isn't your fault. The person who does the cyber bullying may be sad or unhappy, and they may want to make others feel sad or unhappy, too. Don't constantly reread the message or take what the cyber bully says seriously. Instead, remember to be proud of who you are and focus on the things that make you happy in life. You can also find ways to relieve stress. If things start to bother you too much, remember to always tell an adult, like a teacher, parent, or principal! Don't respond and make things worse! And keep all of the evidence from your bully so you can show someone what happened. Proof is necessary!

Stand Up for Others!

If you see or know someone else is being bullied, online or in person, make sure you tell someone and help them! Preventing bullying doesn't stop with just keeping bullies from bullying you! Help others out and make everyone happy.
