"Words can kill!"

I have had drawn to my attention, a clip from 'This Morning' showing an interview with two mothers of teenagers who took their own lives following cyber bullying via social media. 

I have asked my Year 5/6 teachers to show this interview to the children in their classes next week and to discuss the devastating impact that social media can have if used inappropriately. I hope that parents and carers, especially of children in Y5/6, will also watch the interview and be prepared to discuss it with the children if they mention it.  

We will be reminding the children that they must accept responsibility for the way they use social media (IF they use it - please see my January blog in which I mentioned the recommended age requirements for social media apps) and asking them to let an adult know, at home or in school, if they are worried about comments being made to them or to others. 

This is the youtube link to the interview:
