Cyberbullying Warning Signs

cyberbullying_warning_signs

By Sameer Hinduja and Justin W. Patchin

To be sure, it is often difficult to determine whether behavioral or attitudinal changes in youth are signals of distress or simply the usual “adolescent angst” commonly associated with this difficult transitional period in their lives. Nevertheless, it is important for educators, parents, and other adults to learn to read the behavior of their students and children so that real problems can be detected, diagnosed, and promptly handled. A number of red flags may suggest that a child is experiencing some type of distressing event while online. Identifying these indicators may help to minimize the negative emotional and psychological effects of Internet-based harm.
