How a digital 'bullying button' can help social workers tackle cyber-bullying
from The Guardian
Bullying is not a new phenomenon, but in this digital age there are so many more channels for bullying to take place. Where previously a young person might have had a few hours of peace after leaving the school gates, now they can experience abuse any time of day or night, in their most private of surroundings through their mobile phone or laptop computer. When young people are being bullied at school, we tell them to report it to professionals or parents when they get home. When they're being bullied in their own bedroom, it is often a lot harder for them to reach out for help.
