Support your child by explaining that you want them to be safe and that you will take steps to protect their safety and end the bullying. Learn details. Ask your child to describe what happened.

Keep a record of details. Keep evidence. If your child experienced cyberbullying, take screen shots of examples and save all relevant files. Contact the school.

Check in on your child’s emotional well-being. Cyberbullying can take a great toll on them. Seek counseling and support during this hard time. Don’t take away their cell-phone.

Often this can lead to children feeling even more isolated and alone. Most of the kids don’t report the cyberbullying in fear that their phone will get taken away. Here’s what parents can do to protect their child from cyberbullying: Be aware: Parents must develop awareness about cyberbullying and talk about cases of cyberbullying. Discourage bullying: Parents must insist that their child must not send mean or damaging messages, or suggestive pictures and messages. Strict punishments, such as confiscation of cell phones and revoking of privileges, must.

(For recommendations on how to respond to cyberbullying, see our suggestions.) In very rare cases, a few parents simply do not recognize the bullying behavior of their children as hurtful, or worse they may even encourage it. Or parents completely ignore what their kids are doing online, even after being made aware of possible problems. Parents, teachers, and school administrators can help students engage in positive behavior and teach them skills so that they know how to intervene when bullying occurs. Older students can serve as mentors and inform younger students about safe practices on the Internet. There are a large number of ways parents can respond to cyberbullying, but it appears the most common response is to talk to children about online safety.

Comparitech found 59.4% of parents talked to their children about internet safety and safe practices after cyberbullying occurred. Parents may not be aware of the apps that their children use regularly or may not be aware of the risks involved in using them. There are many ways that cyberbullying can be hidden in apps and sites, such as texts, videos, and web calls that disappear or do not appear on the device’s call or text message logs. While nothing can guarantee that our children will not be cyber-bullied, there are many things parents can do to lessen the likelihood that it will happen and to minimize its effects if it does occur. Parents can: maintain open and honest communication, teach about Internet safety and cyber-bullying, build self-confidence, establish enforceable rule.

Find ways to demonstrate that your classroom is a safe, emotionally caring environment. Provide resources in the classroom to help students identify, respond to, and avoid cyberbullying. This could be tips on how to respond to cyberbullying (for elementary school or middle and high school) or the phone number for the Crisis Text Line.

2. But anti-bullying advocates stress that adults need to go further than watching for signs of bullying. “Parents should talk to their kids about cyberbullying regularly,” Peck says. When asking how your child is doing, push for meaningful answers and keep an open mind about whatever you hear: Your child may be a witness to bullying or even a.

  • Australia had a mass shooting in 2019-Government brought tighter gun control, as a result, no mass shootings since then!
    Switzerland had a mass shooting in 2002-Government brought tighter gun control, as a result, no mass shootings since then!
    Canada had a mass shooting 2 months ago-Government brought tighter gun control, as a result, no mass shootings since then!
    America should give it a try, because tighter gun control = less gun violence as proved above. But are those in power going to listen?

  • I got to be careful about hackers, which is like strangers in real life, as if I don’t let my passwords fall into the wrong hands.

  • And a few more things to help you stay safe online.

    1. Do not reuse passwords as if one gets leaked they all could get leaked if you use 1 password for everything.

    2. Use a password manager like lastpass or any other reputable password manager out there. (1password is also a good choice)

    3. Do not open suspicious links even if they are from friends.

    well this list could go on forever or pretty much forever but I’ll leave it there for now.

  • It is a very good animated and interesting video about online safety as people specially students tend to spend lots of their time being online. The quality of pictures and voice in this video is also very good.

  • Okay, So, I’mma say something real quick.

    Basically, I thought I was crazy for 3months. This happened last year, When I was 10. (Still am). I play this game, As you may know, Is Roblox. I love books,writing and drawing (quite possibly school), So I roleplayed a TON on there. I got really good at it, And then a game I played when I was 8 showed up in my feed. I clicked on it, And played for a lil bit feeling a ton of Nostalgia. I met this one roleplayer, And I called him Ku. Ku and I talked a lot and roleplayed a ton, And a few times we even had some VERY INTRESTING CONVERSATIONS. Plus, He started getting super clingy. Like, If my internet got taken away or shut down (or some other form of not being able to go online), He would say things like “Answer me Please.” And “Please.” And many others like it. I vented to Ku, A lot (mostly about girly stuff), So he knew a lot about me. This process is called “Grooming.” I suggest you keep an eye out for such. So one day, My internet and tablet got taken away for 5 days. When I came home on the fifth day, My mother sat me down and had a talk. “Did you know I read every last message on that tablet?” She said. I was speechless, Because I did have a pin. (TBH, It was just!y lunch number). Then she told me that Ku was a child predator. The person I had been talking to for months, Of whom I thought was a supportive friend was trying to hurt me. I also told Ku and my friend’s usernames, So we could rp together. My mom went on and on about how I could have gotten my friends KILLED because of this guy. I was just crying so much, Because, I love my friends and I would never want anything to happen to them. Especially if it was because of my part. She then said he was saying Ku was going to KILL HIMSELF if I didn’t get on. She said he was going into very deep descriptions about how he was going to do it, And then he ended up being turned into the police. I amkst had to get counselling because (Let’s put this in an analogy) “They planted a bad seed in my garden, And we needed to unproot it before it was too late.” I then realized, When I was eight, The same thing happened about people wanting to kill themselves if I didn’t get on. When they sent it, I said something along the lines of “I’m only thirteen,” I used a fake age online btw, “I can’t handle your problems. I havemy own studies and work to get to and I suggest you see a Therapist.” And then they stopped talking to me after that. So please, don’t do what I did and keep a lookout for Child Predators. Perhaps take a class to recongnise when one is talking and or chatting to you. Better safe than sorry.

  • 1:09 The tentacles that you see in every low quality hentaI MEANT TOTALLY FAMILY FRIENDLY ANIMES. YES THAT’S TOTALLY WHAT I MEANT

  • I used to post videos. Still have some up, most deleted because of hate videos and arguing. I stopped realising school is priority. Not content, not being popular, just getting through school.

  • Believe me in today’s world Silence is not the best answer.
    I remained silent for about 1.5 years when I was bullied but one day I broke his nose then.from that day everything became normal.

  • Charlie: I only got 4 millon likes on my last vid Addison: what u got 4 millon I ONLY GOT 3 MILLON me:thank u guys for the 4 likes ^^

  • #cancelalix omg this girl is so insensitive like I’ve watched two of these including the Hannah Todd tragedy and she said omg she said other people have better reasons to commit suicide like omg ������

  • I remember the day this happened at school. My school was near by and schools have never been the same since. I was taken out of school early and my mom wouldn’t let me go. Its sad to see these young lives lost

  • Honestly, bullying is the cause of school shootings. Teachers and Principals really need to be aware of the consequences and should actually stop the bullying, or else a school shooting will actually happen.

  • i would never tell my silings about anything like this they are in elementary school and if you loo up how many of these took place in 2019 or after there is way to many

  • When I heard about the shooting, it made me worry for my younger cousins who were the same age as the kids who lost their lives. I couldn’t stop thinking about them until Christmas rolled in when I got to see my cousins and I couldn’t stop hugging them. I don’t ever want anything bad to happen to them. They’re like the younger siblings that I’ve never had and I love them to pieces. And I’m always gonna protect them.

  • And remember kids when some dude offers u ur dads magic white rocks, says YES! and now excuse me as i get banned because of this comment:/

  • I live in Newton, CT. That day was like no other. I was in the high school, we went into full lockdown. Peoples cell phones started beeping and that’s how we found out. Then there was an announcement over the loudspeaker about what happened.

  • ok im sure he had mental problems and shit to deal with in life but why shoot kids? not saying shooting anyone is right just saying. why kids?

    these people just blame guns and video games or movies honestly the guns do play a huge part but still nobody focuses on helping the people with mental problems

  • Obama was the heart and soul of our country. Then trump came in and stabbed it repeatedly. Go Biden, we have to kick this self serving jerk out of office.

  • And also shooting happened at my school at Freeman when I was like in fifth grade and I was a little bit scared but I’m going to be in eighth grade this year I don’t really remember that anymore

  • I have a “boyfriend” on an online game. This is the longest I’ve stayed with someone online.I want to tell my parents because I’ve added him on instagram and he seems legit. On the other hand I’m REALLY nervous I’ll be in trouble. I’m almost 14 so I’m trying to be safe, but I like him and he’s really nice and he looks my age and we talk a lot. I think I’m going to tell my Mom and just tell her how it’s a game and your just an avatar and I’ll show her the game. Do you think that is a good idea? PLEASE RESPOND!

  • OK I hate the girl that has blonde hair and blue glasses she said that if it was somebody close to her that did she will feel sad but since it’s just random people she doesn’t feel sad like how heartless can you be I’m glad you don’t have a YouTube channel so I can hate you

  • I feel so bad and wierd…There is no way that only America does school shootings…They have to make new laws about guns not being handed to children or something,it loses many lives and lowers their reputation.I am sure the US has good education but why do people have to live in fear?

    Rest in peace to all the victims to this incident,you will be remembered.

  • I feel like that these teens didn’t really care about what happened. Like, they were paid to act and what to say. I know that this is not fake and I’m not saying that. The teens just need to learn to care more. Rest In Peace. 12/14/12��

  • Fine brothers did you know about the Buffy the vampire slayer predicted about the columbine school they banned the episode called earshot

  • I’m scared now bc I live in England (gun shootings don’t happen there since guns are not allowed there) but soon I have to move to Canada….

  • Holy shit. I’m in 2020 and the narrative is the same. The fucking same.
    “Mental health” “no gun reform” “right to bear arms”…. wow

  • How many shootings is it gonna take for america to actually stop it. ONE shooting in New Zealand and We ban ALL Assault rifles and everything and its really hard to get a license and the only guns we are allowed and guns for hunting.

  • I get how people say guns aren’t the problem and that the people with the guns are the problem but someone who is mentally unstable with a gun does a lot more damage to someone mentally unstable with just a knife or some other common weapon. At this point, people are seriously valuing guns over lives of the many and it’s absolutely ridiculous and selfish.

    I guess Americans take pride more seriously than other people’s lives (I was born and live in America)

  • i still think Newton was the worst mass shooting ever. Not in scope of size….but who the victims were. He didnt go to a high school, a movie theater, church, college (not saying those are bad but you’d find teens and adults mosty…can defend themselves if they can) but shooting up a 1st grade classroom is beyond evil. it wasnt a random incident where oh kids were there (greater adult to kid ratio) but it was place for kids (greater kid to adult ratio). he knew (well the best a mentally unstable person can) what he was doing.

  • Being from philipines no one gets bullied but seeing this… this is so sad i mean why just why if your from philipines you can ralate

  • The one thing humans hate most is seeing someone else happy. Sad but true. Please before you reply negatively really think about it.

  • The people that are jealous and that came are dumb asf get yourself checked out a person with a brain knows not to go on anything with someone that they don’t like is in to not hate unlike the dumbo’s here not everyone the dumb ass jealous people

  • Somebody threatened to kill me and my family, so i blocked them, but they came back on a different account
    I told my mom the first time, and she told me to block them
    She keeps telling me to block them, when they keep coming back
