Are You Dealing With Any Kind Of Cyberbullying?

All of us have been bullied in school or college by our seniors. We felt embarrassed, scared and humiliated with such treatment. Recently, ragging was banned by schools or colleges and whosoever was found ragging was either punished or restricted from premises. Even though all these measures were taken, bullying a junior was never stopped.

With the advance technology and science, the process of bullying has also changed. Now, children or adults are not bullied verbally, but are targeted through internet where once you leave a derogatory statement it stays forever. Even though you try to remove it, the entire world might have already seen it.

Now time has changed, parents are too busy with the tough competitive world and they prefer to keep their children occupied with new digital devices.

Such children are misled with gadgets and internet. Mean texting, messaging, video chatting, sharing photographs on social media and interactive gaming are few sources through which they become a victim of cyberbullying. This happens only with children and teenagers, when it comes to adults it takes a legal term.
