Some help­ful tips

This week tip is for ev­ery­one, but es­pe­cially for youth and young adults. Cy­ber-bul­ly­ing! It’s a new way of do­ing old things.

With the use of cell­phones and so­cial me­dia like Face­book the temp­ta­tion to put down your words in the form of a text or a Face­book com­ment is even more tempt­ing than ever. Re­mem­ber that bul­ly­ing is bul­ly­ing. If you text it, you have said it. These words, how­ever, never go away. All elec­tronic for­mat has to be recorded and saved by the com­pa­nies pro­vid­ing the ser­vice.

If you print it we can re­trieve it. For con­stantly bul­ly­ing some­one you can be charged for crim­i­nal ha­rass­ment. The penalty un­der the Crim­i­nal Code in­cludes fines, pro­ba­tion, and even jail time. Any re­la­tion­ship that is end­ing clearly nev- er ends well; don’t put your frus­tra­tions down on a so­cial me­dia site threat­en­ing to do this per­son in or harm them. You may just find your­self in jail. Use your school coun­sel­lor, po­lice, and so­cial work­ers to help solve prob­lems. Ev­ery­one goes through rough times. Talk with peo­ple. Not against peo­ple. It re­ally helps.
