Looking at the above statistics makes me realise even more how bullying have become a serious problem and the importance that teachers are aware of this and prepared for whatever might come up!

Cyber bullying has become very popular, in fact, 1 out of every 6 teenagers are cyber bullied. Despite the fact that online harassment most often take place at home, after school hours, the fallout is seen at schools and it might leave a bad effect on the child’s educational environment. All teachers, not just computer teachers, should bring up this topic whenever possible in class and take it seriously!  Try to educate them what it means to be responsible, kind and respectful and that this should mirror their behaviour online. Give students alternatives and ways on how they can avoid being victims and finally let them know that you are always there to help them and listen to whatever they have to say.

We should be careful and try to recognize any signs as soon as possible. This is most evident from the emotional state of the student being bullied. I believe talking to them alone and asking reasons for being bullied will help them to eventually open up!. Finally, I think that we should be responsible enough to discuss this issue with school officials and the students’ parents.

    In my opinion a teacher should build up a relationship of trust with the students, so if something is worrying them, they feel comfortable talking to you. Teachers should take the initiative and if they see that a particular student changed his behavior or maybe he is not paying attention in their class, it’s their duty to talk in private to the student and show them that you have interest in them.

    Cyber bulling is becoming more popular nowadays. It became the pistol to bully each other because it is easier than being face to face. To make the matter worse, some children also do cyber bullying anonymously and that leave a worse effect on the child.

    It is also the responsibility of the parents to know which sites they are using and sometimes a little coordination while they are using the computer is not such a bad idea.
