The Four A’s of Cyberbullying

Audience:

Online harassment can take place in front of an audience of millions.  If an embarrassing photo or video goes viral, a digital footprint may remain indefinitely.  

 

Access:

An aggressor can harass the targeted child 24/7.  Even at home it can be hard to escape.

 

Anonymity:

An aggressor can remain anonymous while cyberbullying.  Therefore, they can often harass others without being held accountable.

 

Awareness (or Lack of Adult Awareness):

Cyberbullying can take place on apps, sites, and platforms that parents aren’t familiar with.  It’s important to know the apps on your child’s device.
