Bullying in school is common between the ages of 7 and 15 (Forsberg & Thornberg, 2016). Bullying scenarios can help students learn how to deal with issues that might crop up as they go through the schooling system. In most cases bullying is usually physical, verbal, and through cyber space (Mitchell & Jones, 2015). The increased use of social media has also popularized bullying through posting, sharing, viral videos and the likes. Presently, children on social media take advantage of the distance and the anonymity to harass other users by going for their looks, weight, height, religion, background and such. At the same time, the victims are also using the same platform to express their fear, and some even succumb to bullying by committing suicide. A recent increase of social media suicide has also affected other children who have online access (Forsberg & Thornberg, 2016). Such a dreadful experience is not only sad, but traumatizing to those who watch.
By teaching about the dangers of bullying is not adequate to prevent depression or suicide (Forsberg & Thornberg, 2016). As such, there are social interventions that try to educate the society about the effects of cyber bullying and importance of appreciating self. Such groups aim to prevent more cases by encouraging students to self-love. Most of those who are targets for bullying are insecure about one thing or the other (Mitchell & Jones, 2015). Therefore, encouraging students about the significance of loving themselves will make them susceptible to bullying or strong enough to face the bullies. The interventions try to create a space where people can come together and enjoy each other despite their background. In addition, reviewing common bullying scenarios can also help to bring about awareness and ensure that the internet is a safe space.
