How to Handle Hurtful Messages Never talk to people you don’t know online If you receive a bullying message Do not answer it—Save it Block the sender Sign off of the computer right away Tell a grown-up about the message
If You Receive a Hurtful Message From a Classmate Think before answering. Sometimes it is better to share your feelings face- to-face If you answer online, be careful with your words Remember you can’t take them back Keep the message private Never pass around messages that might hurt others
Cyberbullying Never respond to harassing or rude comments. Save or print the evidence. Talk to your parents or guardian if you are harassed; get help reporting this to your ISP, school, or local law enforcement. Respect others online. Only share your password with your parent or guardian. Change your passwords often. Password protect your cell phone. Use privacy settings to block unwanted messages. Think before posting or sending photos – they could be used to hurt you. Contact the site administrator if someone creates a social networking page in your name.
