‘Cyberbullying’ has been a buzz word in conversations about Internet safety in recent years, with much concern for the wellbeing of young users – children and adolescents. If the results of studies conducted by UNICEF and other institutions are anything to go by, a lot of younger users of the Internet have experienced some form of insults/ harassment/ embarrassment while online: • According to the Centre for Justice and Crime Prevention study on cyber bullying in Sout...


"Bullying" is our topic for this week and I'm sure the term "bullying" is sounds normal and common topic. Bullying, according to this website, (http://www.stopbullying.gov/what-is-bullying/definition/) is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems. We all know...

To Bullies: Stop, #ENDviolence. It Won't Last Forever. There is a lot to say and so much to work on. Bullies do not heal by bullying back, shouting, or being suspended.

They should change their thinking in to another way. Maybe they should put themselves in the bullied person's situation. Most importantly, they should k...

Based on my arguments people/students bully others due to the following reasons: a) Due to different social status b) Insecurity – in this I mean personal reasons e.g. girl to boy relationship. c) Peer pressure also contributes a lot. d) Lack of respect. I want to share a story with all the teens and youth out the...

She can’t wait to meet her teacher and find out if any of her new classmates love anim...

The Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) sets out the rights that all children have. Even though it was adopted by the United Nations in 1989, before the Internet and mobile phones were widely available, it remains relevant today. So what do your rights mean in the digital age? How do you become a responsible digital citizen? Have you ever encountered these scenarios? BE CONSIDERATE: You have the right to express your views and opinions on social networks, blogs and...
