The Internet helps you watch videos, play games and do other interesting things. Sometimes people can be mean on the Internet similar to real life. If someone is mean to you while you are on the internet or on a mobile phone.
- Tell someone about it. Tell one of these people: your mum or dad, your teacher, an aunty, an uncle, a grandparent, your brother, your sister or a friend. Keep telling them until they help.
- Don’t answer anyone’s comments. Save them and show them to a parent or a teacher
- Ask a parent or teacher to help you block them so that they are not able to contact you any more
- Report them to the game/video host so they get blocked
- Remember it isn’t your fault if someone is mean online. Nobody should be bullied
If someone is mean to your friend on the internet, you should do the following:
- Don’t join in. Even if their comments are funny and you think they are true, don’t join in hurting another person
- Don’t share any mean pictures or videos or spread mean stories about anyone
- Report bullying to someone that can help. Tell your teacher or parent and tell them what is happening. If you are scared you can also write a letter and post it under their door
- Support them. Tell them you are sorry they are being picked on.
