In our everyday lives at work and at school we are bullied a lot. People are bullied for all kinds of reasons whether it is a disability or looks or some other reason. We watched Cyberbully on Youtube as this movie is a VHS movie.
It stars Emily Osment as a 17 year old girl who has just had her birthday. For her birthday she got a a laptop and all the freedom with it. That night she signed up for a social networking site where she was bullied daily by a girl named Lindsay. It got so bad that she attempted suicide at the end but came out alive.
BE careful of what you post online about someone, it will come back to haunt you later on.
Do watch the movie now, especially during these school holidays. If you have kids you should talk about cyberbullying and being careful online. Kids should tell you their password so that you can check up on them online.
Make sure that they befriend people that they know from school and family friends. They should set their Facebook to private.
If they are being bullied, they should tell you and their teacher. Let them know that they don’t have to go it alone. Be there for them. If you are being bullied at work do tell your manager about it. Make sure that you have evidence such as emails or videos. Tell your family about the bullying so that they can be there for you.
