Educating students on privacy settings on social network accounts.
Educating  parents on how to help their child to be smart online communication, activities and making aware of sites that they visit.
Closely monitor students’ usage of the computers at school

Supporting  the bullied child to regain self-control with the help of school counselor.
When inquiring never ask what happened in front of the bully. When a issue get known by others in the class, bring out a discussion of how they feel in such a situation and how they intervene to help next time. Make sure that there is no retaliation after the problem is solved.

Not all bullying situations will require formal consequences.A simple warning may be all that is necessary.

Hence be vigilant in receptive bullying behaviors.
