Most bully victims do not report the harassment to adults. A recent survey found that 14% of students in Texas have experienced cyberbullying. 90% of those students did not tell an adult about the cyberbullying.
It is evident that most students do not speak out because they feel embarrassed or fear that the bullying will get worse. Parents and adults should monitor any changes in behavior, especially if a child starts to withdraw, has trouble sleeping and eating, or if their “bad days” pile up. This will help identify if the child is a victim of bullying or/and cyberbullying.
