Advice for Children on Cyber-Bullying

  • The following are some things that parents may wish to consider teaching their children about using the internet safely:
  • Make sure you use the privacy settings.
    Always respect others – be careful what you say online.
  • Be careful what pictures or videos you upload. Once a picture is shared online it cannot be taken back.
  • Only add people you know and trust to friends/followers lists online. When talking to strangers, keep your personal information safe and location hidden.
  • Treat your password like your toothbrush – keep it to yourself and change it regularly.
  • Block the bully – learn how to block or report someone who is behaving badly.
  • Do not retaliate or reply to offending e-mails, text messages or online conversations.
  • Save the evidence. Always keep a copy of offending e-mails, text messages or a screen grab of
  • online conversations and pass to a parent, a carer or a teacher.
  • Make sure you tell an adult you trust, for example, a parent, a carer, a teacher, or the anti-bullying co-ordinator or call a helpline like Childline on 0800 1111 in confidence.
  • Most social media services and other sites have a button you can click on to report bullying. Doing this can prevent a bully from targeting you and others in the future. Many services take bullying seriously and will either warn the individual or eliminate his or her account.
  • While you are on your mobile phone make sure you also pay attention to your surroundings.
