Health Tip: If Your Child is Cyberbullied
Suggested next steps
-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- In this age of social media, parents should be prepared to help kids through episodes of cyberbullying.

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission suggests:

  • Stay calm and avoid getting angry. Teach your child to ignore the bully and not to respond with more bullying.
  • Save all messages that show cyberbullying. If it continues, take the evidence to police.
  • Making sure your child's profile is the one he or she created. If the profile was created by someone your child doesn't know, have the site administrators remove it.
  • Block the bully's phone number or email address, or delete the bully from a friends list that allows contact.
