A single message posted online or sent to a mobile phone can spread to a wide audience. A bullying incident occurs between a bully and his victim. If other people are present, they will witness the bullying. Cyberbullying can occur even when it was not intended. A forwarded private message or joke becomes offensive or harassing even though that was not the intent of the original sender A “regular” bullying incident occurs at a specific time and place.

  • First of all, report this to the social networking Web site. Most social-networking sites have a link on every page to allow reporting of inappropriate material or abuse. Someone who is writing mean or threatening messages may be violating that site’s terms of service and their profile may be removed. In addition, instruct your child not to respond to these messages in any way. Responding to these messages only encourages their creator to continue with the hateful messages. If the person posting the hateful messages is from your child’s school you may want to notify school authorities.

  • If your child is bullying someone online, sit down with him/her – and talk about its impact on the victim, explain that this is unacceptable behavior. Also, try to find out why they are doing this, and seek professional help if necessary. And of course, ask them to stop immediately! Read more..
