Cyber-bullying statistics

Cyberbullying is major problem for teens in America.

72% of teens report being bullied online in the past year, with 25% being
bullied
more than once.

Despite it’s prevalence, just 1 in 6 parents are aware their child is the victim of online bullying.

Why?

Teens don’t tell their parents because they feel ashamed and are afraid about how their parents might react.

This leads to kids skipping school to avoid offline confrontation, or even worse, feelings of depression.

So, what can parents do to combat this growing problem?

To help answer this pressing question and provide additional insights, the team at Rawhide Boys Ranch have put together a detailed infographic covering everything from prevalence rates, common types of online bullying, offline consequences, reactions, warning signs and helpful tips for parents.

You can find additional information in this in-depth post.
