At Balance Educational Services, we suggest that targets of cyber attacks save the evidence so that school officials, ISP providers, website hosts (and even the police, if necessary) can properly deal with the bully or the posting.

Not responding to a cyber attack and signing off of those sites is VERY difficult for children. They will need a lot of support, reminders and alternative activities besides using the computer.

Ultimately, parents and teachers have to discuss the bullying issue with all kids and teach them pro-social behaviors. We detail how to teach these qualities in our book, How to Stop Bullying And Social Aggression: Elementary Grade Lessons and Activities That Teach Empathy, Friendship, And Respect. (Corwin Press). These strategies empower targets to stop direct and indirect bullying, including cyber bullying.
