Bullying and cyber bullying are two major problems that young teens and adults have. These two things are not the same, but they do in fact intersect one another. Lots of people are committing suicide every year just because of this problem. It starts online then it can lead to neighborhoods or even at your own house. An important key to know if you’re being bullied, is to talk to someone about it, don’t keep it to yourself. Cyber bullying happens on many of the common places online. This includes places like MySpace or Facebook, but it’s also common in chats, instant messaging, and emails and on message boards. It’s really important to think before you post anything personal about yourself online. The same thing goes for if you are being bullied on a school campus. Talk to someone about it. Or just stay near an instructor or someone where safe.
When people are being bullied online or on campus, it hurts them and they can go into the stage of stress or depression. They might feel lost and they don’t know what to do about it. That’s when they can’t trust anyone, and they become lonely. The worst part of it is when people find them dead. It’s a tragedy! Many people and family members have lots of unanswered questions. Of course, everyone wants to know who is involved, so they call the police immediately to investigate.
Bullying and even cyberbullying is everywhere no matter the grade or age. It is in elementary schools, middle school, high schools and even college. Bullies think life would be a lot better if all the people they harass would not be here. But the people who were bullied, I know for a fact if they were still here, they would also have a better life if the ones who started the bullying faced several punishments.
Parents and teachers need to be more aware when it comes to being bullied. No matter if it’s online or on school grounds. If teachers or faculty members see someone getting bullied they should take the bullies to the principal’s office for a talk on the harm they are causing. The same thing goes for parents, if they know that their child or children are being bullied, they need to do something about it.
This also goes for the ones who use computers, cellphones, or any other devices. If someone is posting negative things about you, the best thing to do about it is by talking to someone else about it or delete that social network. That way, you will never see it again, and you can just move on with your life. One of the reasons why people like to bully others online is just because they are jealous of those people.
This is exactly why bullying and cyber bullying need to have a better law. Lots of innocent people are killing themselves just because of this. It’s very important that everyone follows the rules when they make an account on any social network. There is not enough punishment taking place.
