CYBER TIP

If You Are a Victim of Cyberbullying

It is not normal to be afraid to go to school or to the park, or to leave your home. Here is what you can do to stop cyberbullying:

  • Print out the web page (forum, blog, email or site) or text message where you saw the cyberbullying. You can use this as proof.
  • Talk to an adult you trust (for example, a parent, teacher, older brother or sister).
  • Report the situation to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter or to the website where the cyberbullying occurred. Most of these sites have ways to deal with cyberbullying.
  • Contact one of these organizations:

TRIBES AT HOME

TRUST WALK

This activity is done in pairs and you take turn being blindfolded and being a leader. One person volunteers to be led with their eyes closed or blindfolded. The other member of the pair leads the person for five minutes, taking very good care of the blind partner. After five minutes, switch roles.

TRUST CIRCLE

Make a circle with your family and friends. Have one person stand in the middle with their eyes closed and feet planted firmly. Have the rest of the people gently push on the shoulders of the person in the middle, making sure they do not fall. The group supports the person as they rotate.
