Cyberbullying occurs when the Internet or mobile devices are being used to hurt feelings and create fear, sadness or anger in others. This has become common among boys and girls all over the world. Sending mean text messages or sharing embarrassing images online are two examples of cyberbullying.
If your child is experiencing cyberbullying, they may be reluctant to come clean with you, the reason; they worry that things will get worse. But if you realize it, you must act because it is a serious problem that will continue to occur without the intervention of adults.
