HEY Today is supporting Internet Matters’ eight-week campaign to raise awareness of cyberbullying and educate parents on how to deal with the issue.

We recently spoke to schoolchildren at St Charles RC Primary School in west Hull about their thoughts on cyberbullying.

Here’s what they had to say on the matter…

What does an online bully do?

Chelsea (8): An online bully says lots of mean stuff that you don’t want to hear and they send very bad messages.

Sofia (9): They say mean words, they make fun of you and tell lies about you.

Erin (8): They hurt your feelings and make you feel sad when they send mean messages.

How would you feel if you were bullied when using the internet?

Chelsea: I would feel very sad and unhappy because you don’t want to be bullied. I would feel very hurt.

Sofia: I would feel annoyed because they won’t stop and you can’t fight back because you’re a good person.

Tatliana (8): I would feel depressed because I’ve done nothing wrong to them.

Lucy (8): I’d feel scared if they got personal information or details.

What would you do if you were bullied online?

Sofia: I would tell the police or delete the message.

Marta (8): I would tell a grown-up so they could help me.

Erin: I’d delete and block them so they can’t contact me.

How should people act towards other people when using the internet?

Chelsea: People should be nice because bullying can hurt people. It can also be very dangerous.

Sofia: They should be kind. Just because you’re on the internet it doesn’t mean you have to be mean.

Lucy: Only talk to people you know in real life and be nice.
