Cyberbullying is bullying that happens using electronic technology. It can include mean or embarrassing photos, videos or comments posted on social media or sent by text. Sometimes teens don’t want to admit to experiencing cyberbullying because they think that bullying only happens to younger kids. Ask your child to tell you about their experiences as a perpetrator, target or bystander. Listen to their stories and help them problem-solve. Ongoing bullying puts victims and bullies at greater risk for depression and anxiety. The good news is every kid can play a role in stopping bullying. Learn more.
