In order to assist parents in the event their child is a cyberbully, this page outlines the steps parents should take to address their child’s behaviour. Parents should pay attention to warning signs such as online behaviour (if they have multiple accounts, secretive, long hours online, etc.), and other behaviours (spending time with mean friends, becoming aggressive, resisting following rule, and judgmental). In the event one’s child is a bully, parents are recommended to talk to their child about cyberbullying, take action to stop their behaviour, and get them help. A guide about what parents should avoid doing, such as responding with anger, denying the situation, and justifying their child’s behaviour are outlined.


The Teaching Against Islamophobia resources were developed with funding support from the Law Foundation of BC, and the Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies at SFU.
