Online dangers: cyberbullying causes fear and illness, both mentally and physically

Parents' evening (Online)

Tuesday, 6th of February 2024
7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Our children's everyday and social lives are shifting to digital - a trend that has intensified and accelerated during the pandemic. This brings opportunities, such as for location-independent, modern educational formats, but also dangers.
Cyberbullying is one of the most fundamental of these. Bullying via digital media is spreading rapidly among pupils and affects all types of schools.
Almost two million pupils are affected by cyberbullying - and the trend is rising.
This makes it all the more important to show children the dangers so that they can navigate the internet safely and avoid negative experiences. Education and communication are the key to protecting our children in the best possible way.
What does cyberbullying actually mean? Why do people "bully"? And what can I do if I am affected or witness bullying myself? Aline Fink discusses these and other questions in her entertaining talk. She explains to parents why they should understand rather than forbid and gives them tips on how to keep their children safe in the media.
