Steps to Respect
Bystanders who are part of the problem:
instigate the bullying by prodding the bully to begin.
encourage the bullying by laughing, cheering, or
making comments that further motivate the bully.
join in the bullying once it has begun.
passively accept bullying by watching
and doing nothing.
Bystanders also have the power to play a key role in preventing or stopping bullying.
Bystanders can be a part of the solution by:
discouraging the bully.
defending the victim.
redirecting the situation away from bullying.
rallying support from peers to stand up against bullying.
reporting the bullying to adults.
Bystanders who don’t help or don’t report the bullying often suffer negative consequences themselves. They may experience:
Pressure to participate in the bullying
Anxiety about speaking to anyone about the bullying
Powerlessness to stop bullying
Vulnerability to becoming victimized
Fear of associating with the victim, the bully, or the bully’s pals
Guilt for not having defended the victim

If you are the victim of a cyberbully, what can you and your parents do?
Do not keep this to yourself! You are NOT alone! Tell an adult you know and trust! It is very hard to solve such problems on your own.
Inform your Internet, Instant Messaging or mobile phone service provider
Inform your local police
Don’t reply to messages from cyberbullies!!! Even though you may really want to, this is exactly what cyberbullies want. They want to know that they've got you worried and upset. They are trying to mess with your mind and control you, to put fear into you. Don't give them that pleasure.
Do not erase or delete messages from cyberbullies You don't have to read it, but keep it, it is your evidence. Unfortunately you may get similar messages again, perhaps from other accounts. The police and your ISP, and/or your telephone company can use these messages to help you. You might notice certain words or phrases that are also used by people you know.
