Member Event: Cyberbullying/Internet Safety for Teens & Parents
CYBERBULLYING/INTERNET SAFETY CLASS FOR TEENS AND PARENTS
Cyber bullying can be very damaging to adolescents and teens. It can lead to anxiety, depression, and even suicide. Once things are circulated on the Internet, they may never disappear, resurfacing at later a time to renew the pain of cyber bullying.
Many cyber bullies think that bullying others online is funny. Cyber bullies may not realize the consequences for themselves of cyberbullying. The things teens post online now may reflect badly on them later when they apply for college or a job. Cyber bullies can lose their cell phone or online accounts for cyber bullying. Also, cyber bullies and their parents may face legal charges for cyber bullying, and if the cyber bullying was sexual in nature or involved sexting, the results can include being registered as a sex offender. Teens may think that if they use a fake name they won’t get caught, but there are many ways to track someone who is cyber bullying.
