Online bullying for children on the rise
BBC – The number of children and young people needing counselling about online bullying has increased by 88% over five years, according to a helpline.
The NSPCC’s Childline service said it counselled more than 4,500 children in the past year compared to about 2,400 in 2011-12.
The total number suffering online abuse is thought to be far higher.
Some children as young as seven told Childline how they were tormented, abused and scared to go to school.
The charity said online trolls caused misery and humiliation for thousands of children.
