Peer pressure and fitting in

Here are our tips on how to have good interactions online and avoid falling into the cyberbullying trap:
If it doesn’t feel right, don’t send it
Remember that things can be misunderstood very easily online
If you’re upset or angry wait until you feel calm before posting/sending anything
Be kind toward people and try posting/sending positive messages instead of negative ones
Treat people online as you would want to be treated
Get the person’s permission before posting/sending photos or videos of them
Understand that everybody is different and be respectful toward people even if you don’t like or agree with them
Think about what you’re posting/sending before you do it – check with yourself using the questions above before sending anything you might regret
