Text of the Petition

We petition the Welsh Assembly government to fund and undertake evidence based research, and produce a strategy with recommendations for building resilience in our children - from infancy - against the devastating effects of Cyber-Bullying.


Additional Information

The strategy should include advice for parents and schools as to:

  • how to create healthy views and relationships around social media
  • how to prepare children to identify and guard against the behaviours that cyber-bullies use
  • how to teach children to emotionally separate their online experiences from their 'real life' ones
  • how to build emotional resilience to personal attacks online
