CYBERBULLYING Resources for Parents:
Parent tips for elementary school kids
- Keep online socializing to a minimum. Let your
kids use sites like Webkinz or Club Penguin where chat is
pre-scripted or pre-screened.
- Explain the basics of correct cyber behavior.
Tell your kids that things like lying, telling secrets, and being
mean still hurt in cyberspace.
- Tell your kids not to share passwords with their
friends. A common form of cyberbullying is when kids log
in to another child's email or social networking account and send
fake messages or post embarrassing comments. Kids can protect
themselves from this by learning early on that
passwords are private and should
only be shared with their parents.
Parent tips for middle school kids
- Monitor their use. See what they're posting,
check their mobile messages, and let them know you're keeping an
eye on their activities.
- Tell your kids what to do if they're harassed.
They shouldn't respond or retaliate, they should block bullies
immediately, and they should tell you or an adult they trust. They
shouldn't delete the messages because in persistent cases, the
content should be reported to a cell or Internet Service
- If your kid is doing the bullying, establish strict
consequences and stick to them. That goes for cruel or
sexual comments about teachers, friends, and relatives.
- Remind them that all private information can be made
public. Posts on friends' walls, private IMs, intimate
photos, little in-jokes can all be cut, pasted, and sent around. If
they don't want the world to see it, they'd better not post or send
- Don't start what you don't want to finish.
Chat in online games and virtual worlds can get ugly fast. Make
sure your kids are respectful because hurtful retaliation happens
all the time.
