This petition letter is addressed to all parents and teachers in order to raise awareness and address cyberbullying, which not only affects the victim's physical and mental health but can also affect the teacher and, in many cases, the parents because they are always at home together. Far too many college students are subjected to cyberbullying on a daily basis. Fortunately, the problem is becoming more widely recognized on college campuses, and the numbers have now tripled as online classes have become the new normal. During the COVID-19 pandemic, there is an increase in the use of digital platforms by children and teenagers. They're not just using digital platforms for personal reasons; they're also using them for educational purposes.
College students, particularly those who require more hands-on experience, should concentrate more on being a student, enjoying learning on their preferred course, and making memories with their friends. However, adolescents who have been pulled out of school and mandated to social distancing may find additional screen time appealing, and if the opportunity presents itself, cyberbullying may become one of their activities. Hence, victims, instead of seeking emotional support from friends, have no choice but to keep it for themselves. Normally, adolescents would seek their parent’s support, but some parents are not reliable, and are closed-minded, causing them to be stressed and exhausted. Furthermore, many teachers do not bring up the subject until it has already occurred. However, because teachers are aware of what cyberbullying looks like, intervention may be necessary to keep students safe.
We recommend that all schools implement Grand Mentoring, which will provide a safe and secure environment for not only teachers and students, but also parents. To serve as a wake-up call for parents and teachers, reminding them that just because their child or student appeared normal and fine doesn't mean they aren't dealing with emotional and mental issues. Awareness is essential for dealing with issues like these, and it begins with the students themselves.
