It's so much easier now for "keyboard warriors" to bully people online and it can have some devastating results if allowed to continue.
It was something brought home to me fairly recently when a bullied child walked into my kids school with knives and a shotgun to "deal with the issue himself."
Unsurprisingly, any reports of children being bullied at school or on social media are now taken far more seriously!
It seems it all stemmed from others being jealous as they were losers in their own right but very sad it developed into what it did..... Totally unnecessary but something every parent needs to be aware of and look out for.

I totally supported this initiative when O2 first joined forces with the NSPCC.
Through the power of social media, bullying can have a devastating effect on children today.
Made even worse when they refuse to tell their parents that they are being bullied.
My grandson experienced the 'side' effects of bullying when one of his closest friends hung himself when they were at 6th form college.
Anyone under 18 is classed as a child, and this person was 17 yrs old with the rest of their life yet to come.

I agree that it needs to be talked about more, and that's why initiatives such as this NSPCC/O2 newsletter seem so important Giving families more tools to articulate conversations around these topics can only help children be more respectful of each others' feelings and more able to speak up if needed.
