It can sometimes feel easier to ignore bullying when you see it happening to someone else, but ignoring it doesn’t make the problem go away for the person being targeted. Be an upstander and do something positive to help the person being bullied.
Here are some steps you can take if you see someone being bullied online:
- Report them to the game/app.
- Take screenshots of their bullying so you have proof.
- Be a good friend to the person being bullied – say something positive about them and offer to help and listen.
- Tell a trusted adult so they can help and support the person being bullied.
