Tips to Stop Cyberbullying
Reposted from ConnectSafely.org

Don’t respond. If someone bullies you, remember that your reaction is usually exactly what the bully wants. It gives him or her power over you. Who wants to empower a bully?

Don’t retaliate. Getting back at the bully turns you into one and reinforces the bully’s behavior. Help avoid a whole cycle of aggression.

Save the evidence. The only good news about digital bullying is that the harassing messages can usually be captured, saved, and shown to someone who can help. You need to do this even if it’s minor stuff, in case things escalate.

Talk to a trusted adult. You deserve backup. It’s always good to involve a parent but – if you can’t – a school counselor usually knows how to help. Sometimes both are needed. If you’re really nervous about saying something, see if there’s a way to report the incident anonymously at school.

Block the bully. If the harassment’s coming in the form of instant messages, texts, or profile comments, do yourself a favor: Use preferences or privacy tools to block the person. If it’s in chat, leave the “room.”

Be civil. Even if you don’t like someone, it’s a good idea to be decent and not sink to the other person’s level. Also, research shows that gossiping about and trash talking others increases your risk of being bullied. Treat people the way you want to be treated.

Don’t be a bully. How would you feel if someone harassed you? You know the old saying about walking a mile in someone’s shoes; even a few seconds of thinking about how another person might feel can put a big damper on aggression. That’s needed in this world.

Be a friend, not a bystander. Watching or forwarding mean messages empowers bullies and hurts victims even more. If you can, tell bullies to stop or let them know harassment makes people look stupid and mean. It’s time to let bullies know their behavior is unacceptable – cruel abuse of fellow human beings. If you can’t stop the bully, at least try to help the victim and report the behavio See MoreSee Less

What’s Happening With Friday Night Live?

Can you tell the difference between an e-cigarette, a pen
or pencil?
Vape Pens,E-Hookahs and Electronic Smoking Devices or ESD’s usually contain nicotine, are flavored and are powered
by a lithium battery.

They do not produce smoke in the traditional sense,
they produce an aerosol. Contrary to what the companies marketing these products want you to believe, the aerosol is NOT just harmless water vapor. E-cigarette aerosol has been found to contain at least ten chemicals known tocause cancer, and birth defects.

Flavors are used to market these products to youth.
Studies of e-cigarette use show that bystanders absorb nicotine from passive exposure (second hand smoke).
In 2014 slightly more than half of the reported exposures
occurred in young children under the age of 6.
