How to Recognize Cyberbullying
If your kid feels threatened, is scared to go to school, withdrawn, or overly focused on the website where you suspect bullying, that would be a good indicator that trouble is afoot and you might want to go ahead and raise the red flag with the kids parents or with the teacher.
Kids often do post things they think are funny, but are hurtful and harmful. Also, a heavy volume of posts can be an indication of digital harassment. It can also indicate that the child who is doing it (if it is one child) is not being supervised and his or her parents should be notified.
