Cyber bullying - The use of digital media tools, such as the Internet and cell phones, to deliberately and repeatedly hurt, harass, or embarrass someone else.

Examples of cyberbullying behavior:

· Social pressure often motivates behavior

· Cyberbullies aren’t always the kids we’d expect

· More public, permanent, and inescapable than traditional school yard bullying

· Targets commonly experience sadness, social anxiety, or acting out

· Crosses-over between school and home

· What our school is doing

· What parents and guardians can do

· Dealing with Cyberbullying Incidents

· Starting the conversation
