How to Discuss Cyberbullying With Your Kids
If you suspect your kid may have bullied someone else, I would talk to them about what's going on in their life and why they acted out like that. If they truly hurt someone else, there should be consequences for that behavior. For many kids, learning to use online communication tools responsibly and respectfully is a learning process. But you know your kid best—and you are the best judge of how responsible they are and how impulsive they might be, so continue to talk about your expectations (and consequences) for online behavior.
