Cyberbullying isn’t harmless fun

If your child is a victim of cyberbullying, they may experience an increased likelihood of developing anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, or feelings of worthlessness. Consequently, their behavior may exhibit changes as a result of being targeted by a cyberbully.

According to research findings, 41% of children attribute their social anxiety to cyberbullying. Additionally, over half of the teenagers who have experienced cyberbullying expressed feelings of anger, while approximately one-third reported feeling hurt. Furthermore, nearly 15% admitted to feeling scared following such incidents.
