What is Cyber Bullying?


Cyber bullying (online bullying) is when a person or a group of people uses the internet, email, online games or any other kind of digital technology to threaten, tease, upset or humiliate someone else.


How can I ensure my child is not involved in cyber bullying?


Monitor what your child is doing online or on their phones.

Talk to your child about the responsibility they have online.

Look at the e-safety rules with your child.

Do not allow your child to have a facebook account - this is illegal before the age of 13... watch the video from CEOP above to learn about why not!

Watch the video below with your child and talk to them about the impact of cyber bullying.

Make your child aware that cyber bullying is a criminal offence and the police could be called if they are involved in cyber bullying.
