Cyberbullying is a huge problem among children, however many people do not get that parents can receive cyberbullied also. Social networking bullies often target parents who are seeking advice or seeking to make friends. Facebook parenting groups are renowned to be cliquish and unwelcoming to parents who combine. And it isn't only a surprise that most parents are demonstrating bad behaviour online. Various studies have demonstrated that people feel permitted to be mean or cruel online in a sense that they would not inperson. Children pick up on that and eventually become bullies themselves when they listen to parents discuss the way they intimidate the others online.
I Had a Victim
I had been a victim of online mom bullying once I combined a local parent's face book group. A new member of the band asked a question about a school event and has been immediately singled out for torment by the others in the category. As soon as I defended the new mother the group switched on me. Naturally, I'm an adult, so I was better equipped to deal with the bullying compared to a child would be. Nevertheless, it was still very upsetting and frightening.
Zero Individual deserves to be bullied
After the other moms at the group chose to create my life as difficult as possible they started sending me tens of thousands of messages and annoys me. One kept telling me to kill myself as my children would be better off without me. As fast as I would block them they would develop new dummy reports and message me . And on facebook, you cannot block strangers from sending you messages.
The Bullies Gain Strength
They started messaging every one on my face book friends list saying terrible things about me personally. Plus so they phoned my supervisor and also tried to make me fired. They almost did get me fired. My boss told me to keep my personal problems out of the workplace because he was angry that they were emailing and calling constantly. They even had their kiddies harass my kiddies at school. It had been dreadful. And if it had been very troubling for me as an adult I cannot even imagine how difficult it really is for a young child to manage that sort of behaviour.
We teach our children to not frighten, why not we do exactly the very same? What You Could Perform
You're not accountable for people bothering you and you are not responsible for the actions of others. If you are being bullied on social networking accounts your bullies and prevent them. Maintain a listing of every single message and every incident so that you can report them at the town where you live. Also, check on Kiwi Searches should they've done something like this earlier. However, there are also some way to protect yourself online to prevent any severe effects if you really do get bullied such as:
Don't list your employer publicly in your own profile. This merely tells people how to frighten you even further.
Don't list your address or any personal information openly in your own profile. Make sure that all of your security settings are locked down tight.
