Cyber-bullying victims are more likely to pick on other people using technology... particularly if they are girls | Mail Online

Cyber-bullying victims are more likely to pick on other people using technology... particularly if they are girls | Mail Online: "Children who are victims of cyber-bullying are more likely to use technology to pick on people themselves, according to research published today.

A survey of secondary school pupils found girls were more likely to bully others using texts or the internet, as boys stuck to more traditional forms of cruelty.

Child psychologist Shane Gallagher also found that parents were unlikely to know the extent of the problem, whether their child was a victim or a bully."
