Cyberbullying: What You Can Do
These days, bullying doesn’t just happen in the schoolyard. Bullying has followed kids into cyberspace as they spend more time online and on their phones. Cyberbullying happens when kids bully each other through emails, text messages, online games, or social networking sites. It might involve sending mean messages or posting embarrassing photos. But there’s something you can do.
On August 15, 2012 the Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention will host a webinar, Cyberbullying: What You Can Do. Join the webinar to hear partners from the Federal Trade Commission and the National Crime Prevention Council discuss how schools, parents, and communities can all work to help prevent cyberbullying. We’ll discuss:
- how to create a supportive environment that breeds respect and acceptance
- how to assess school climate for cyberbullying, in order to understand and prevent the problem
- what policies exist in schools that may affect kids’ online behavior in and out of the classroom
- resources to spot and stop cyberbullying
Cyberbullying: What You Can Do is a free webinar that is open to the public, but registration is required.
