National Online Safety

Going online makes it easier for people to say and do things they probably wouldn’t do face to face. Online bullies don’t get to see their victims’ reactions in real life, so this can cocoon them from the real damage that they are doing. Quite often, people bully because they are going through something difficult themselves and taking it out on others is the only way they know how to get control of their own emotions.
