It's easy to spend an hour or more scrolling through social media at bedtime (I know I've done it myself on occasion). Do yourself a favour and use that time to sleep instead - teenagers need between 8 to 10 hours a night!
I am horrified by the things people say online - hateful and hurtful things that shouldn't ever be said or typed. If you have been the victim of haters or trolls here is some useful information from the esafety commissioner. You can find out more here.
If you are under 18, and the reported cyberbullying content has not been taken down within 48 hours, it can be reported to the Office of the Children’s eSafety Commissioner.
Trolling and hate upsets most of us, no matter how strong we are. If a troll or hater upsets you please talk about it with trusted friends and family, get some support and remember, it’s not you, it’s them.
