Cyber Bullying Worse Than Physical Assaults

Two in three parents believe their children do not fully understand the implications of cyber bullying.Jackie Van Vugt, General Manager for Cybersafety at The Alannah and Madeline Foundation, said that parents need to be more involved in their children’s Internet usage. The survey, conducted by Telstra, showed that 95 percent of parents say they have discussed online safety with their children despite Van Vugt’s comment.

Research by the Child Health Promotion Research Centre at WA’s Edith Cowan University revealed that one in ten teenagers fell prey to cyber bullying every few weeks through online and mobile messages and photos.

The US National Institute of Health found that cyber bullying victims were more likely to suffer higher levels of depression than victims of physical bullying. Its research showed that cyber victims were more likely to feel isolated and helpless as they may not see or know their harassers.
