Effects of Bullying on the Victim
Effects of Bullying on the Bully
Relationship between bullying and suicide
Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Electronic technology includes devices and equipment such as cell phones, computers, and tablets as well as communication tools including social media sites, text messages, chat, and websites.
As teachers, it is our responsibility to become aware of cyberbullying and know the facts that surround this growing issue. The more that we know, the better we can protect our students and prevent future incidents from occurring.
6 Tips for Responding to Cyberbullying
1) Take it seriously: let the students know you care.
2) Recognize the signs: Do the students seem depressed? Are their grades suddenly dropping?
3) Ask the students to report it.
4) Respond to the Incident- If you find out about an incident, pay close attention to right after it happens. Encourage the victims to to not erase the evidence. Tell students take a screenshot of the evidence and share it with an adult.
5) Find the Right response: Identify what the proper punishment will be and what actions you will take to make sure this will never happen again.
6) Get parents involved: Invite parents to workshops about cyberbullying and share the school’s policies with them.
Students who bully are more likely to engage in violent and other risky behaviors when they are adults. Kids who bully are at higher risk for:
Abuse alcohol and drugs
Get into fights, vandalize property, and drop out of school
Engage in early sexual activity
Have criminal convictions and traffic citations as adults
Be abusive towards their romantic partners, spouses, and children as adults
Even though too many adults see bullying as something that just "happens" when you are a kid, it is a serious problem that can have dramatic consequences, suicide being one of them.
According to the CDC, suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year
Victims of bullying are between 2 to 9 times more likely to commit suicide than non-victims.
At least half the suicides among young people are related to bullying.
Types of Cyberbullying
Anonymity- Anonymity is when someone makes threatening comments but hides who they are through the use of an alias or a pseudonym
Pseudonyms- Pseudonym or an alias is like a nickname.
Flaming- an intense argument. One that normally takes place over a chat room, instant messaging, or a Facebook status.
Masquerading- A form of bullying where the bully pretends to be someone they are not.
Cyber Stalking- Stalking but on the internet. Messages may be sent over email or a social network
Outing- is the public display or forwarding of personal messages.
Harassment- a bully repeatedly sending a messages to a particular individual or group.

Many people think that cyberbullying
is just one certain kind of bullying.
However, there are 8 different kind
of bullying that can take place.
Kids who are bullied can have negative experiences in school, as well as negative mental and health issues. They are most likely to experience:
depression and anxiety, feelings of sadness and loneliness, sleeping and eating patterns changes, and interest in activities gone.
Academic achievement decreased- such as GPA and standardized tests scores- and school attendance. The likelihood to miss, skip, or drop out of school increases.
Nearly ¾ of Americans consider cyberbullying to a serious problem
Cyberbullying can happen 24/7, 365 days a year.
It can be done anonymously because technology facilitates the spread of harmful texts or images. Once these images or messages have occurred they can be hard to completely erase from every site, application, or device.
About every 1 in 5 students will either be the victim or the perpetrator of cyber-bullying. & many have been the both the victim and the perpetrator
