Cyberbullying statistics show that this form of bullying is a relatively new type of harassment. It happens in the online realm, and it’s a consequence of the increased use of social media and digital technology.
At the moment, 44% of people have suffered through it.
This phenomenon is highly prevalent and impactful, especially among the younger generations. Children are also way more susceptible to the influence of people they meet online.
As October is the National Bullying Prevention Month, Jehovah’s Witnesses posted detailed information on its official website for all parents to use.
One Family from Texas Takes the Time to Learn More
One El Paso family shares their experience with their three children, aged 10, 12, and 15. One day, their oldest son approached them to ask about what he found online. His parents advised him to ignore what he saw.
The Valencia family then took the time to learn more about recognizing whether their children are being cyberbullied.
The family states they’ve been using the Jehovah’s Witnesses website that’s packed with resources on online bullying. The US spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses, Robert Hendriks, said he hopes more families will utilize the available resources, regardless of their beliefs.
