Government's Advocay for Anti-Bullying

When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time. Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy.

Formally, we define it as “willful and repeated harm inflicted through the use of computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices.”
