Bullying and Cyberbullying

bullying small“Bullying can happen to anyone at any age. Being bullied at school, home or online might involve someone pushing you, hitting you, teasing you, talking about you or calling you names.No one has the right to hurt you or make you feel bad, and if you are being bullied you don’t have to put up with it, you can talk to someone about it”. Childline www.childline.org.uk

“Cyber bullying is when a person or a group of people uses the internet, mobile phones, online games or any other kind of digital technology to threaten, tease, upset or humiliate someone else. Cyber bullying is a form of bullying but because it happens online or on mobile phones it can happen 24 hours a day, seven days a week”. Childline www.childline.org.uk

“Bullying can take many forms, such as name-calling or teasing (verbal bullying), hitting or pushing (physical bullying), intimidation through threats or social exclusion (emotional bullying) and writing of offensive messages via the use of new media (cyber-bullying). Bullying can happen to any child at any time. Some children, however, are more vulnerable than others. Ralli Campaign www.youtube.com/rallicampaign
