What to do next

Listen and help – Allow your child to explain what has happened and talk about it before making judgements.

Don’t deny access – It can be tempting to ban devices or using the internet to prevent the bullying but this isn’t a solution and can make a child feel worse.

Know how to get help – Your child’s school can help you deal with cyberbullying and provide support and advice. If you feel the law has been broken then online bullying can also be reported to your local police force
