I get emails from kids who are being cyber bullied. I tell them that there are a number of measures that they can take. For instance, if you know your cyberbully, block their access to your emails or fb page.
Tell your parents. Let them either contact the bully’s parents directly or write and send a certified letter stating that they will take legal action if the cyberbullying doesn’t stop.
If it’s a case of physical threats, lewd photos or racial slurs- you might be able to go to the police and press charges.
If you don’t know your bully, there are groups like Wired Safety who will help with identification. Another source is to contact the bully’s internet provider. If you file a complaint, sometimes the bullies internet access can be denied.
Again, none of these steps are easy but whether it’s the comedy club, workplace or schoocl yard, bullies have to be confronted.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
