Cyberbullying & Online Safety
Bullying has been around forever but cyberbullying is new. Before everyone had phones and the internet, teenagers who were bullied at school could leave their tormentors behind at the end of the day. Cyberbullying can follow you home and continue even when you’re alone in your bedroom. Shockingly, children’s charity the NSPCC says it has recorded an 88 per cent increase in calls about cyberbullying in the past five years – and usually it is a continuation of either physical or face-to-face emotional bullying.
NSPCC has teamed up with O2 to help you keep children safe when they're using the internet, social networks, apps, games and more.
