Young people today have an amazing amount of technological resources at their fingertips. They can chat with each other via mobile phones, connect and share items on social media sites and talk to each other in real time via Instant Messenger. Sadly, all of these amazing technologies can also be used by a person or group of people in order to engage in cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is where technological tools are used to deliberately intimidate, humiliate and attack another person. Embarrassing photos, hateful text messages, false Facebook and Twitter accounts and other methods can all be used to bully someone online.

Cyberbullies have a range of weapons in their arsenal. They can post embarrassing photos of their target online, create false Facebook and other social media pages using names similar to their target, they can send threaten texts that include sexual or racist language, or combine with others to attack the person in online forums and chat rooms.
Cyberbullying is very serious and has led bullied kids to commit suicide, drop out of school, turn to drugs and alcohol in order to cope and even move to another part of the country to escape the torment. If your child has forced to deal with cyberbullying, don't assume that it is just part of the modern world or "kids being kids." The activities can have a horrific effect on your child and legal action needs to be taken against those deliberately attacking them.
