Transcript of Cyber Bullying
It is illegal to cyber bully someone (or just bully them in general)
You can get in trouble at school as well
Sending nude or sexually aggressive pictures around to other students at your school can be counted as the distribution of pornography.
If someone were to commit suicide or self harm, you would have to live with the personal consequences of your conscience.
If you are being cyber bullied, it's not going to do you any good to keep it to yourself. Get yourself help. Tell an adult, your school counselor, principal even. Make sure you are letting someone know that you are being harassed.
* Just about half of students surveyed claim they have been cyber bullied.
* Just under half admitted to being the bully.
* 10 to 20 percent say they are bullied regularly.
* Cyber bullying is more common among girls than boys.
Think before you send
The best way to prevent cyber bullying is to think before you click send. Here are some questions to ask yourself:
* Could this message possibly offend/hurt someone?
* Would I like it if someone said those things to me?
* Can I get in trouble for posting this video or image of this person?
It's NOT just a joke
4500 teens commit suicide each year, most had been bullied before hand.
You could be physically hurting them
Any type of bullying can lead to loss in self esteem, and can also cause anxiety and depression. These are some of the causes of self harm, and even suicide.
Cyber Bullying Comes in Many Forms
~ Posting an embarrasing video of someone online
~ Posting an unflattering picture of someone online
(This can also come in the form of sending these media items around)
~ Calling someone mean names through messages
Don't be a bystander!
If you see someone being bullied online, say something! If they won't get themselves help, help them! But don't make their business yours. Just let a trusted adult know what is going on. They should be able to take care of it from there.
