Still a good answer @redhead. After adult intervention they stopped, I think that's pretty fair.

Well I think removing yourself from those places on the internet could be beneficial. Obviously telling someone, although that can be difficult.

Haha @redhead! Spot on!

 

I definitely agree with that. Don't try and change their mind, don't try and prove them wrong, just disconnect from them. 

 

Another good trick is to write what you want to say to them, get it all out and then shred it instead of sending it. That actually works really well apparently. You get the feelings out but the bully doesn't get any fuel for their flame war, they just get blocked Smiley Tongue

It sucks to have to miss out because of other people but maybe leaving certain social media platforms.
Blocking the person
Blocking a phone number
Talk to somebody

Another thing you could do if it's serious is report it to the police, it's illegal

Last question for the night:

What might be some of the challenges in following through with these things?

Well sometimes we might not want to leave a site just because of one bully, sometimes the bully might try and get other people on their side, and sometimes we might get a little too caught up in the situations, in the heat of the moment it can be really hard to just walk away!

FOMO - fear of missing out, you might not want to leave a certain app or site because you'll miss whats going on
