Bullying can happen on the school campus and in the cyber space as well. However, what makes cyber bullying worse is that the bully can remain anonymous, making him do and say things that he otherwise can’t do. Hurtful words are exchanged, rumors start and spread, profiles and emails get hacked.
FACT: 83% kids met their online predator face to face and readily went somewhere with them.
Internet is a great way to meet new people and make friends. But the kids can also bump into online predators. These people are skilled manipulators, who pretend to be kids or friendly adults and befriend the child. They connect with kids using flattery, sympathy and by investing time in their online friendship. Once, they have gained the trust of kids, they ask for personal details like school name, address, phone number, snaps and more. They then take their friendship offline and track the kids down.
FACT: 40% of kids below 13 years have seen pictures on social networks of their friends getting drunk, pass out, or using drugs.
