Cyberbullies do tend to target teens and children most often, and the focus of most educational campaigns surrounding this topic focus on young people. However, anyone can become a victim of cyberbullying, cyberstalking or even workplace bullying. It’s important to know the laws and to stay aware of any bullying behavior in communications you receive.
We all have a role to play in stopping it. If you have children, talk to them about it. Make it clear that it’s a crime and not just a harmless joke. Encourage your children to come to you if they are the victims or if they see any instances of bullying online. Often, victims are embarrassed or ashamed of the messages that are sent to them and don’t share the information with anyone. In some cases, they may be threatened or they may feel so isolated that they believe there is no way out. Bystanders sometimes see bullying take place but fail to act.
What can you do to stop the bullying?
Make it clear to your children that there are solutions for cyberbullying and explain that perpetrators can be held responsible and even prosecuted in the courts for their actions. Don’t tolerate cyberbullying you witness — no one deserves to be bullied.

The mother of the 15-year-old sent her to clean her room Sunday afternoon, not knowing that would be the last time she would see her alive. Minutes later, the mom went to look for her daughter, Tovonna.
“I go to the bathroom; I couldn’t get in the bathroom. The bathroom light was off so I tried to get in and I looked down and I saw the puddle of blood. I tried to apply the pressure, the pressure to her head. I tried to save her,”
