They stress to us that cyberbullying is not just an adolescent problem. It’s just that we spend the majority of our efforts studying how this problem impacts school-aged youth due to their tenuous developmental stage.
That said, I thought I would take some time here to give the adults who have been victimized out there some general advice.
First, it is important to keep all evidence of the bullying: messages, posts, comments, etc.If there are ways you can determine who exactly is making the comments, also document that. So, if you haven’t seen it, it might be worth checked it out. Let me preface this by saying some of these fics require knowledge of the show and the characters.We have discussed some of these laws on this blog and have a summary of many applicable laws here.
In Wisconsin, for example, it is a misdemeanor if someone uses computerized communication systems to “frighten, intimidate, threaten, abuse, or harass another person.” It is also against the law to “harass annoy, or offend another person.” See what the laws in your state are to determine if the police should get involved.Second, contact the service or content provider through which the bullying is occurring.For example, if you are being cyberbullied on Facebook, contact them.wiki How's mission is to help people learn, and we really hope this article helped you.Now you are helping others, just by visiting wiki How.If you are receiving hurtful or threatening cell phone messages, contact your cell phone company to obtain assistance.
