Cyberbullying: Two Stories

TR5.26a Cyberbullying is when a person or group of people uses things like the internet and mobile phones to threaten, tease or upset someone else.

Cyberbullying is different from other types of bullying because it can happen when someone is at home rather than at school or in the street. You might also not know who is bullying you because cyberbullies can hide their identity.

On page 308 you can read about two victims of cyberbullying. They both managed to deal with the difficult situation, and they are now "cyber mentors" for an anti-bullying charity in the UK. A cyber mentor is someone who gives support and help to other young people who are experiencing cyberbullying.
