Surveys have shown that despite the fact that one third of teens feel they have been the victim of cyber bullying, most of them never report it. They are often ashamed or fear that parental involvement will make things worse. Kids also hesitate to talk to their parents about cyber bullying out of concerns that they will lose their cell phone or Internet privileges.
One way parents can help their children avoid becoming silent victims of cyber bullying is by educating themselves and working to raise awareness of the issue. By bringing cyber bullying out into the open, victims will be more likely to report abuse and the cyber bullies more likely to face consequences.
