 You can still have fun on the internet  whilst having fun ! So here are some great tips for you: 

 Never give out your real name • Never tell anyone where you go to school • Only meet someone from a chatroom in a public place with one of your parents or another adult. If they are genuinely who they say they are they will be happy to do this • Never give out your address or telephone number • Never agree to meet anyone from a chatroom on your own • Tell an adult if someone makes inappropriate suggestions to you or makes you feel uncomfortable online.

Cyberbulling can happen at anytime and it can happen in the comfort of your own home. In today’s world kids are becoming more and more assessible to the internet and cell phones. Right now social networking sites are the biggest thing on the internet. People have the freedom to write whatever they want online for the world to see. It can also come in the form of an email, which emails can easily be forwarded to a lot of people very quickly. According to a I-Safe Inc. study, 42% percent of kids have been bullied online while 20% have had it happen on more than one occasion. The problem with cyberbullying is that you always dont know who it is. The person that is doing the harassing could be anonymous and really hard to track down. Not to mention a cyberbully could strike at any time, not just during recess on the playground.
