"Yes, I've been bullied and cyber-bullied! Cyber-bullying is a lot worse than bullying because you don't know who sent them and you can't escape!"

Betty, 11, Doncaster, England

"I was cyber-bullied by my 'friend.' She sent me horrible texts. Never delete them, show them to your mum, and if you know the person you she can show their parents. If you don't know them have them blocked from your phone or that website."

"I don't think anything could stop it. You shouldn't let them get to you if they want to be that childish to bully you over text, internet or email."
