According to the NSPCC in March 2013, 38% of young people in the UK have been cyber bullied with 31,599 children calling child line in 2012 regarding bullying. A recent Panorama programme called “Hunting the Internet Bullies” stated that 1 in 10 teachers are bullied online in the UK and 20% of children are reluctant to go to school due to being bullied. Worryingly 11% of children say that this makes them depressed and 3% attempt suicide in the UK.
According to a US government study of 9-12 year olds in public school, 16% reported seriously considering suicide, 13% reported creating a plan and 8% reported trying to take their own life in the 12 months before the survey. According to the US government, suicide is now the 3rd biggest killer of young people aged between 10 and 24. Every 6 hours in the USA a child commits suicide. In the USA 160,000 children missing school daily due to bullying. (US schools are paid based on children’s attendance – UK schools are measured in OFSTEA on attendance). Young girls are more at risk, as while boys tend to play computer games – girls take to social networks where their personal lives tend to play out.
