We can all conjure up a mental image of a “bully” – someone mean, troubled, and angry who takes out these feelings on others. You might imagine a person from your life or a character from a film or television show. But what happens when the “bully” in question is the child in your care?
This is a reality many parents and carers are facing, especially as cases of cyberbullying are rising.

The most important thing to remember is that a bully who is a child is still a child.
Our online safety experts have put together this guide to help parents, carers, and teachers make the best decisions when dealing with a child who is bullying their peers.
