“I know I didn’t have to, but I felt obligated to return the favor.”

“After I didn’t want to continue sending pictures, he threatened to create a Facebook page with my nudes.”

Chatting. Flirting. Preying on insecurities.

Caught!

5 ways to deal with your child being cyber-bullied

Both face to face and online bullying are potentially very damaging but cyber-bullying can feel even trickier to tackle because it’s harder to escape.

Even in a child’s bedroom – which used to be a safe place- the bully can now enter and that’s the worry. Because of this, as well as the effects of bullying in general, which include anxiety, social anxiety, low mood, fear, a sense of apprehension about entering school, school phobias, you have the added element of feeling trapped. You can’t get away from it.
