At one time, bullying would usually end in the safety of the home, away from school and the neighbourhood. Unfortunately, with cyber bullying, the torment can continue at home, day and night. It may seem as it there’s no escape from it. And because cyber bullying is much easier to do than “regular” bullying, and because a cyber bully can be anonymous, it is happening more and more.

What exactly is “cyber bullying”? It’s using the Internet or a mobile device to harass, embarrass, intimidate or harm someone, violating their privacy and sometimes even making threats. It can be as devastating as physical abuse – and in some cases, more so.

Kids and teens who don’t know where to turn for help can feel completely helpless and desperate, while parents may not even know that it’s a problem.

Doing nothing is not the solution. While Cyber Bullying, doesn’t presume to have all the answers, it provides useful advice on how victims can cope, how they can end the cyber bullying and how it might be prevented in the first place. The book includes interviews with real-life former victims of cyber bullying and addresses how kids might help a friend who is being cyber bullied. Further resources of information are listed at the end.

Kids who are being cyber bullied must speak out. Although it may not be easy and it may be embarrassing, it’s vitally important for them to let someone know. It’s also important for kids who know of others being victimized in this way to speak out.
