Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Electronic technology includes devices and equipment such as cell phones, computers, and tablets as well as communication tools including social media sites, text messages, chat, and websites.

Examples of cyberbullying include mean text messages or emails, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, and embarrassing pictures, videos, websites, or fake profiles.

Parents and kids can prevent cyberbullying. Together, they can explore safe ways to use technology.

When cyberbullying happens, it is important to document and report the behavior so it can be addressed.
