Knowledge #2: Bullying/Cyberbullying

WHAT IS BULLYING? Any type of bullying can have physical and psychological effects on a child. Anxiety, fear, depression, low self-esteem, behavioral issues, and academic struggles are just of the few challenges kids may experience if they are targets. For example, unlike traditional bullying—which is often limited to school and known bullies. Cyberbullying however, may be particularly damaging. Cyberbullying can occur at any time, day or night, and be perpetrated by anonymous sources. This makes it more relentless and, often, more cruel.

QUE ES BULLYING? Cualquier tipo de acoso puede tener efectos físicos y psicológicos en un niño. La ansiedad, el miedo, la depresión, la baja autoestima, los problemas de comportamiento y las luchas académicas son solo algunos de los pocos desafíos que los niños pueden experimentar si son el objetivo. Por ejemplo, a diferencia del acoso tradicional, que a menudo se limita a la escuela y a los agresores conocidos. Sin embargo, el ciberacoso puede ser particularmente dañino. El ciberacoso puede ocurrir en cualquier momento, de día o de noche, y ser perpetrado por fuentes anónimas. Esto lo hace más implacable y, a menudo, más cruel.
