Sudden changes in behaviour could indicate cyberbullying.
You know your child best, but be proactive and aware. Key signs can include being upset after using devices, changes in personality, a decline in school work and appearing lonely and distressed.
If your child is affected by cyberbullying, it’s important that you help them report it to the social media service. We also encourage you and/or your child to report
serious cyberbullying to us using our complaints form (see link at the end of the tour). Depending on the case, we can help get the material taken down.
We also work closely with parents, schools and police to help stop the cyberbullying and to make sure your child has access to support services, like
Kids Helpline (on 1800 55 1800).
Young & eSafe site can also help your child build a more positive online experience through key skills, like resilience, respect and empathy. See links to this site and other important cyberbullying resources at the end of the tour.
