Cyberbullying is a huge problem among children, but some people do not get that parents will get cyberbullied also. Social media disputes regularly target parents who are requesting information or attempting to socialize. Facebook parenting classes are notorious for being cliquish and unwelcoming to parents that join. And it isn't really a surprise which parents're exhibiting bad behaviour on line. Studies have demonstrated that individuals feel empowered to be cruel or mean online in a way that they would perhaps not in person. Kids recognise that and become bullies themselves whenever they listen to parents talk about the way they intimidate others online.
I Had a Victim
I was a victim of internet mom bullying once I joined a local parent face book group. A new participant of the group asked a question regarding a school event and had been instantly singled out for anguish from the others in the category. As soon as I defended the new mum the group switched on me. Naturally, I'm an adult, so I had been better equipped to deal with the bullying compared to a child would be. Nevertheless, it was still very upsetting and frightening.
Zero Individual deserves to be bullied
After the other moms at the group chose to create my own life as difficult as possible they started sending me hundreds of messages and annoys me. One kept telling me to kill myself as my children will be better off without me. As fast as I'd block them they would generate new dummy accounts and message me . And on facebook, you cannot block strangers by sending you messages.
The Bullies Gain Strength
They began texting everyone on my Facebook friends list saying terrible things about me. And they called my boss and also tried to make me fired. They almost did catch me fired. My boss said to maintain my own personal issues from their workplace because he was mad that these were calling and freezing always. They even had their children harass my kids at school. It was terrible. And if it had been very upsetting for me as an adult I cannot even imagine how difficult it really is for a kid to manage that type of behaviour.
