This week has been anti-bullying week in school. Bullying has been given a new face in the age of social media. When bullying happens online it is usually referred to as cyber bullying. When people continuously send abusive and harmful messages to people they don’t know online this is known as trolling. There is a clear link between bullying and self-esteem issues, both for the bully and the bullied. It can be helpful to talk to your child about why some people may bully or ‘troll’ others online.
