Mentioned below are a few tips for parents on how to deal with a child who engages in cyber-bullying:

Teach your child about the impact of cyber-bullying: Seek advice from a professional such as a business keynote speaker in that area as children mostly can’t really grasp the extent of the damage that bullying causes. It is your responsibility to educate them about the affects cyber-bullying can have on others. Try cultivating empathy in your child by giving them a glimpse of what the victims of bullying actually go through. Moreover, warn them about the legal ramifications of cyber-bullying so that they may refrain from doing it again.

Help your child find proper ways to deal with stress: Cyber-bullying can be a channel of release for some kids. Talk to a business keynote speaker as he/she can assist you with tools that can help to dispel their anxiety, stress, fears and frustrations. In order for them to stop resorting to bullying for release, you need to teach your children to cope with their emotions through decent and healthy ways. For instance, get them in the habit of regularly engaging in physical activity or help them be more social etc.

Decrease their access to technology: Establish some fixed timing in which your child is allowed to use the phone or use the computer. Plus make it known that their activities on both will be monitored and that if you end up finding out anything suspicious, they will be punished accordingly!

Cyberbullying is a big issue faced by internet users, and hence you need to monitor your children closely. Here are two tips on how to monitor their activities:

Seek the help of an expert or professional speaker who is trained to talk to your child on matters like these.

Activate proper filter on the computer: You need to set up some filters on your child’s personal computer. A professional speaker in that area has the knowledge and will assist you with one of those tracking software installed on the pc, which allows you to block inappropriate websites.

Never respond to the bullying: If you have been attacked by cyber bullies, it’s imperative that you keep yourself from retorting to their comments, no matter how mean or fallacious they might be.

Plus a response from you is exactly what they want, so do not let them have that kind of satisfaction

Keep collecting your evidence. Start gathering your evidence for whenever you were bullied. Save the comments, or save screen shots of pages where the comments were posted. Once you have the evidence you can first report to the administrator of the page to block out the cyber bully.  Or if the posts comprised of some inappropriate sexual messages then you can head down to the police or authorities that deal with cyber bullies. In such scenarios, the cyber bully’s can be prosecuted by law. If you do not report these incidents, then with time it will get worse. Listen to someone with experience in these areas such convention speakers who speak out on matter of cyber bullying.

Prevent contact from the cyber bully: Just try blocking out the user, their email address etc from all social media platforms and forums.

If you are being cyberbullied, then keep in mind the following things:

It wasn’t your fault to begin with.  Tell yourself that it had nothing to do with you and you were not responsible for any of it. Cyberbullies aim is to make you feel worthless and inferior and you should not blame yourself for their obnoxious acts. Regardless of how a cyberbully attacked you, a professional speaker will tell you that it’s not your place to feel guilty or embarrassed but rather it is them that should feel ashamed about their spiteful behavior.

You shouldn’t let yourself be affected by cyberbullying

Constantly remind yourself the reason why cyberbullies love to bully. When dealing with cyberbullying on your own there is a way to instantly jump off the stress wagon and to stay unaffected by it. You need speaker to someone like a professional speaker on that subject or tell yourself that the cyberbully is simply one miserable loser, who is most probably frustrated and discontented with their own life.  As they say misery loves company, keep in mind that cyberbullies just want to gain control over your emotions and make you feel exactly the way you do. So brush off whatever they try hitting you with and never give them the satisfaction of winning!

Don’t dwell over it. Dwelling over the episode will only exacerbate the situation.  Quit reading the comments again and again, rather just delete them. It’s in your best interest to just let it go.

When it comes to teens that might be facing issues of low self-esteem and social anxiety, research shows that online blogging proves to be a rather beneficial source of engagement for these individuals. Overall, it has shown to improve their self-esteem and also helps them to better relate with the people around them.

Researchers explain that by getting accustomed to writing a personal blog or any sort of expressive writing individuals are able to liberate themselves from emotional distress. Hence blogging can be an extremely therapeutic and cathartic exercise which will allow you to express yourself freely, without any fear of intimidation.

Furthermore, psychoanalyst state that in some cases maintaining a personal blog had more of a positive impact on a distressed students’ welfare than them simply marinating a personal diary. Additionally it was also seen that when students allowed their blog to be commented on by the internet community, they were able to connect and socialize with others with greater ease.

Though students should be wary of cyber-bullying, such cases can always be reported to the server admin, which usually will take care of the situation almost immediately. Always keep in mind that the positive feedbacks will do more good than the occasional abuse you might have to bear with from time to time.
