Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying - National Crime Prevention Council
Cyberbullying - National Crime Prevention Council
If you’re like most teenagers, you spend a lot of time on a cell phone or instant messenger chatting with friends and uploading photos, videos, and music to websites. You may have online friends whom you’ve never met in person, with whom you play games and exchange messages. Teens’ lives exist in a variety of places such as school hallways, part-time jobs, and friends’ houses. Now many teens also have lives on the Internet. And bullying has followed teens online.
Online bullying, called cyberbullying, happens when teens use the Internet, cell phones, or other devices to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person. Cyberbullying is a problem that affects almost half of all American teens. Whether you’ve been a victim of cyberbullying, know someone who has been cyberbullied, or have even cyberbullied yourself, there are steps you and your friends can take to stop cyberbullying and stay cyber-safe.

Stop Cyberbullying
How cyberbullying works
There are two kinds of cyberbullying, direct attacks (messages sent to your kids directly) and cyberbullying by proxy (using others to help cyberbully the victim, either with or without the accomplice's knowledge). Because cyberbullying by proxy often gets adults involved in the harassment, it is much more dangerous.

Cyberbullying: there is a way out!

COFACE marks the Universal Children’s Day with a video to help parents, teachers and teenagers to identify Cyberbullying, and to provide advice and tips for a way out.

Children have the right to be protected from being hurt and mistreated, physically or mentally, they have a right to privacy; all this is enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. We all share a collective responsibility to guarantee that these rights are enforced and enable children and young people to play, learn, develop, and participate, both offline and online.

Check out our brand new video: ‘Cyberbullying: there is a way out!’

In Europe, statistics and figures show, that about one in four children experience cyberbullying at some point in their lives. The impact of cyberbullying on victims is well known; it affects their self-esteem, school performance and can even lead to suicidal thoughts and attempts. Cyberbullying also has an impact on the perpetrators, bystanders, parents and schools. Therefore this video is intended as a tool for all concerned:
