Cyberbullying statistics prove overwhelmingly that cyberbullying is a real issue in the world today… and if your student is on either side of the equation, there’s at least a 50% chance they’re not telling you.

So what can you do?

By understanding the signs of cyberbullying (whether your kid is the bully or the victim) and taking steps to help them, you can help to change these statistics. 


I want to say something very important here — if your child is cyberbullying, it is highly likely that they do not understand what they are doing.

The fact that these communications occur in type, and online, greatly reduces their perceived impact. Kids believe that online statements simply “don’t count” because they’re not being said to someone’s face.
