Ideas to stop Bullying and Cyber Bullying
What and Where Is Bullying, Cyber and Internet Bullying?
Rumors, threats, gossip, humiliation - are nothing new. But today, with instant messengers and when we are always connected and wired, bullies are starting to move beyond slam books and whispering campaigns to e-mail, websites, chat rooms, and text messaging.
Sending cruel words and unflattering pictures are so easy with the click of a button, hidden by screen names that often make you anonymous, but the results can emotionally scar someone for life.
Don't do it! It's HURTFUL and PAINFUL. Stop to think how you would feel if you were the victim!
Just because you cannot see someone face to face, and perhaps do not know who they are, does not mean they are not human or that they cannot be hurt by you.
Make friends not enemies! It's just as easy to be nice as cruel.
While on the Internet or a Wired Device:
If you are or someone you know is being bullied have the person tracked at www.cyberbullying.ca
Join your school's peer-support group if they have one, or start one. They can offer comfort and advice to victims of all sorts of bullying.
If you see someone being bullied on the internet, do what you would do at school, notify someone, a teacher a parent. There are many places they can report it to.
Rise to the occasion, and do something nice for a person being bullied. This makes you a bigger and better person. This turns a negative to a positive.
Use our PEACE ideas listed abovewherever you are!
And remember, it's a safer place if you have a parent around when you get on the internet.
Don't Let a Few Ruin It For All:
The internet can be a wonderful place to learn and share. It is a great teaching and learning tool and a place to be social and make friends as well.
Let's keep it positive!
