whole world

responsibility to discipline
he virtual world is seen as ‘fake’, so children can believe that bulling online
isn’t as bad as physically bullying
2. What are the connections between bullying and cyber bullying?

at the same time, some people that would not bully face to face, can have more
power and confidence to bully when they don’t have to face their victim

cyberbullying can be a victims response to bullying bullying another
individual as a result

schools that don’t have a school psychologist – who does that role fall to?
