can take place through phones, chatrooms, and e-mail. For example, a
student in your school might get your number and keep calling you. This
may be only irritating at first, but it might turn scary at night, and
can get very stressful over time.
Other cyberbullies might send
messages to others saying mean things about you. One of the things
about bullying on a mobile phone is that you can tell who is calling
and inform the teacher or other adult.
E-mail bullying may not
be limited to saying nasty things. All that the bully needs to do is to
send you a large e-mail message many times over. This clogs up your
inbox and prevents you from receiving other e-mail. One of the most
dangerous pranks a bully can play is to send out offensive e-mails
pretending to be you. People who receive such e-mail get angry with you.
on your blog, a cyberbully can leave nasty comments about you. Many
visitors to your blog might see it before you get a chance to clean it up.
there are many types of cyberbullying, all of which are harassment.
Sometimes the victims are also threatened face-to-face and
forced to give up their lunch money or private information.
