Use Common Sense!
Be an upstander! If you witness cyberbullying, you can help by supporting the target and letting the bullies know that their behavior is not acceptable. Here are things you can do:
Step in to help in a cyberbullying situation by letting the target know you are there for them.
Listen to and empathize with the target.
Do not spread rumors; instead, tell the cyberbully to stop
Report what is happening to a trusted adult or website administrator, or encourage the target to tell a trusted adult. A trusted adult is someone who lyou believe will listen and has the skills, desire, and authority to help you.
