Cyberbullying is serious — but it can be stopped.
Most youth spend a lot of time online. There is a good chance your child has witnessed, been the target of, or even been cyberbullied themselves. There are actions you can take to prepare and protect your child in case it ever happens to them.
What is cyberbullying?
Cyberbullying is using computers, smartphones, or other connected devices to embarrass, hurt, humiliate, torment, threaten or harass someone online. It is a serious issue that we can stop together.
