Cyberbullying impacts at least one out of every five primary and high school students. Many of those who experience it don’t tell anyone. If a child displays any of these signs, he or she might be involved.
One of the top concerns of many of the psychologists today has been the escalation of cyberbullying. The internet may have introduced an incredible array of learning and knowledge possibilities, but it has also opened a gateway to allow those with problems to pursue bullying in ways and intensities that have never been seen before.
While the internet has brought about some incredible advantages, it has also opened up a channel for people to have the kind of negative behavior that they might or might not do in a face to face situation. One of the most destructive behaviors has been the increase in cyberbullying, which has had an incredibly bad effect on kids; some to the point of causing physical harm. Every child, parent and caregiver needs to be aware of what cyberbullying is and how to stop it.
