Cyber-bullying Q & A

Cyberbullying - Stop It NowQ. Why do you think children are more likely to bully on the internet, than in person?
A. Some children feel they can be anonymous when they are on-line and therefore no one will know about their cyber-bullying behaviours. Many people find it is easier to be sneaky when using the internet for bullying purposes.

Q. Do you think the technology of the internet encourages kids to bully?
A. Yes. The fact that children are intrigued by the internet and use it frequently for social networking can be part of the attraction. Also, sometimes on-line bullying goes unchallenged. That can encourage kids to continue to cyber-bully other children.
