Being Safe online


The internet can be great fun. You can chat to your friends, play games and learn about new things. But sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like.
TELL AN ADULT YOU TRUST if you are upset or worried about something that has happened to you. They can help you to report it to CEOP.


If you don’t feel there is anyone you can talk to, there are people at Childline who will always listen to you. They won’t tell anyone else about what you’ve said, which means you can feel safe talking to them.




Cyberbullying


Cyber bullying is the name that is used when people use the online world to send nasty and upsetting messages to others.
Sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say nasty things to you which upset you, or you may see something that you don’t like.
If this happens, you must remember that it’s not your fault:

  • ALWAYS TELL A TRUSTED ADULT straight away if you are upset or worried about something that has happened online. 
  • Remember to SAVE ANY MESSAGES that have upset you so you can show them to who you tell - they will be able to help, and they will be able to give you good advice about what else you can do. Never worry about getting in trouble - you aren’t the one who has done anything wrong. 
  • If you don’t want to talk to a trusted adult, you may want to chat to someone else about how you feel. ChildLine is a site where you can have a private 1-2-1 chat with a counsellor who will listen to you and not judge you. You can also call them for free on 0800 1111 and it won’t show up on your phone bill.
