Dealing with cyberbullies – don’t add fuel to the fire

Fighting back is only likely to make the bully ramp up the situation. Depending on what’s going on, you might want to try ignoring them instead. A lot of times, the cyberbully just lives for the reaction they get from their target. You can also take subtle steps, like blocking messages on social media or changing your email address if you’re getting unwanted emails. If the problem persists, you may have a stronger case for taking legal action.
