CyberBullying

Cyber-bullying involves the use of information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group, that is intended to harm others. "Cyberbullying" is when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies or mobile phones. It has to have a minor on both sides, or at least have been instigated by a minor against another minor. Once adults become involved, it is plain and simple cyber-harassment or cyberstalking. Adult cyber-harassment or cyberstalking is never called cyberbullying.

Harassment

Harassment covers a wide range of behaviors enacted by one person to another person that are intended to disturb or upset, and usually repetitive in nature. Harassment can come in many different forms including unwanted text messages. Text messaging harassment is when someone continuously sends text messages to a person when they either aren't supposed to or have been asked to stop doing it.

Bullying

Bullying occurs when a person is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other persons, and he or she has difficulty defending himself or herself. Bullying is aggressive behavior that involves unwanted, negative actions. Bullying involves a pattern of behavior repeated over time. Bullying involves an imbalance of power or strength.

Depression

Most people have felt sad or depressed at times. Feeling depressed can be a normal reaction to loss of a friend, loss of a relative, poor performance in school, and loss of a sporting game, students life's struggles, or an injured self-esteem. But when feelings of intense sadness, feeling helpless, hopeless, and worthless last for many weeks your depression may need to be treated as a medical condition and you may need to seek counseling and talk about how you are feeling to a counselor or physiologist.
