Be unwilling to attend school
Receive poor grades
Have lower self-esteem
Have more health problems
Who knows why kids do anything?
When it comes to cyberbullying, they are often motivated by anger, revenge or frustration.
Sometimes they do it for entertainment or because they are bored and have too much time on their hands and too many tech toys available to them. Many do it for laughs or to get a reaction.
Some do it by accident, and either send a message to the wrong recipient or didn't think before they did something.
