CYBERBULLYING:

TIPS FROM THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS ON PROTECTING YOUR KIDS ONLINE:

  • Keep computers in easily  viewable places, such as family room or kitchen.
  • Talk regularly with your children about the online activities in which they are involved and Internet etiquette in general.  Children should know the rule that many adults have learned: Do not say online what you would not say in person.
  • Encourage children to be self protective.  Anything they say on Internet or in phone text messages can be shared with others and misused.
  • Be specific about the risks of cyber-bullying and their need to tell you if something that bothers them occurs.
  • Respect for adolescents’ privacy is important. But tell children that you might review their online communications if you have reason for concern.
  • Be aware of warning signs that might indicate your son or daughter is being bullied, such as reluctance to use the computer, a change in the child’s behavior and mood, or reluctance to go to school.
  • Document any bullying.
  • Be equally alert to the possibility that your child could be bullying others online, even if unintentionally.
  • File a complaint with the Web site, Internet service provider or cell-phone company if you learn of problematic behavior.
  • Contact police if the cyber-bullying includes threats.
