1: What Is Cyber Bullying? Cyber bullying is the use of technology to harass, torment, and cause harm to other peers.
2: Parents need to be supportive if their kid is being cyber-bullied. A good way to support them is to let someone know that works at his or her school. They also need to be the one trusted place kids can go to when being cyber-bullied. Also, don't hesitate to report it. If you see just about any signs of them being cyber-bullied it needs to be reported. Evidence needs to be preserved in order to tell the police about the issue.
3: Know what your child is doing online and ask to friend or follow them on websites that you are capable of and make sure nothing seems like they're being cyber-bullied. If you feel the need to do so, you may want to check conversations with someone you might be suspicious of and know what websites your kid uses to learn more about what they are doing exactly. Also, encourage your kid to tell you if they are being cyber-bullied in any way from posts on the internet, or even texts or pictures that aren't appropriate.

5: 5 Tips to Stop Cyberbullying 1. Never post your personal information or a friend's. (Besides the fact that it is criminal to post someone else's information without their consent, you don't want any creeps to see your info). 2. Never respond when you are bullied. They want a rise out of you. Not responding shows them you don't care. If it doesn't stop, save the messages and tell someone. 3. Never use acronyms. Text messages do not have a voice, so the other person may take it another way. You may want to reread it and change the wording. 4. Never talk about race, religion, or war on the Internet (at least with people you don't know) because the Internet exists all over the world. These topics can really offend people. 5. Never put private information in a message. It could be sent to the wrong person and possibly end up on the Internet-which is also why you want to Google yourself every once in a while, just in case there is any unwanted information.
