DON’T BE A BULLY
Online bullying is rife in New Zealand. Anyone thinking of hiding behind social media to post malicious comments or incriminating photos to bully other people should become familiar with the Harmful Digital Communications Act first.
If your children are on social media, regularly make sure both they and you feel comfortable about what they’re experiencing. If they are being bullied, don’t be afraid to get their school involved. If it’s you, don’t be afraid to block or report the troll to social media administrators. If that doesn’t help, report them to the police.
