Beat Cyberbullies
Cyberbullying is a big deal. Be prepared so you know how to handle a situation.
It is important to get the tools you need to defend yourself or a classmate against cyberbullying. Online bullying or teasing is deeply hurtful and dangerous. But you can take steps to learn how to deal with bullies and get help for yourself or a friend.
Follow the link below, and scroll down to the "Resources for Kids and Teens". Explore those links, and always tell someone you trust if you are being bullied. You are never alone.
