Cyber bullying is very common and has been around for a long time. It is very dangerous because it is the social media where everything you post stays online for the whole world to see and it can never be deleted. In my opinion cyber bullying is the most severe and dangerous form of bullying because it is very accessible today due to smart phones and computers and most teenagers have these technologies surrounding them and this means the bullying will follow the victim home, to school really anywhere making the poor person go through depression anxiety, self harm or even worse, become suicidal. They want to connect with their families and friends but they are leaving themselves open and vulnerable to cyber bullying. Parents need to be aware of their child, they need to notice any slight changes because victims of any type of bullying will not go to their parents for help.
Bullying is a wide spread problem and over 3 million children are absent from school each month ( Cyber bully hotline 2013), so how is this effecting their future, their education their capability to rise?
Bullies continue to bully because they feel there are no consequence. As a community we need to take a stand against cyber bullying by creating support groups were our children can feel secure and safe.
