Cyberbullying: What Parents Can Do to Protect Their Children
PACER Center
If the word "bullying" makes you think of one child picking on another in the schoolyard, it is time to update your image of how students bully. While the face-to-face harassment certainly still exists, new ways of bullying have emerged. With the easy access to cell phones, instant messaging, mobile devices, social networking websites, and other technologies, bullying has found its way into cyberspace. The Internet has become a place for some children to post mean and inappropriate comments about their peers. PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center unites, engages, and educates communities nationwide to prevent bullying through creative, relevant, and interactive resources. This booklet, released by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center, has information for parents on how to address cyberbullying with their child and what steps to take if their child is being bullied online. A three-step plan to address cyberbullying includes: (1) Have the "cyberbullying" conversation; (2) Set cyber safety rules; (3) Know what your children are doing online. Steps to take if your child is being bullied online, as well as a list of online resources regarding cyberbullying and internet safety are included in this booklet.
