London, UK (PRWEB) December 08, 2013
In its series for examining trends and in preparation for cyberbullying statistics 2014, NoBullying.com, a product of Treze Ltd, examines in an article released today why the Philippines is the fourth highest searching country on Google searches for the term "Cyberbullying".
According to Google Trends's Report, the fourth highest searching country for Cyberbullying worldwide is the Philippines.
The Article, published today, speculates that this number in google searches may be due to the fact that the anti-bullying act of 2013, explained in the article, has been finally signed in the Phillipines and strongly criminalizes acts of bullying. The anti-bullying act dictates that, “Within 6 months, elementary and secondary schools are expected to come-up with their strategies, policies and procedure relative to the implementation of the anti-bullying act of 2013”
It also dictates that the Department of Education in the Philippines must come up with implementing rules and regulations related to preventing all types of bullying.
The act defines bullying as a “severe or repeated use of physical act or gesture, written or electronic expression or combination thereof resulting to fear, physical, emotional harm, damage to property, creation of hostile environment and infringement of rights of another student.”
The extensive law in the Philippines lists acts of bullying as “physical bullying, social bullying, verbal bullying and cyberbullying”.
Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of NoBullying.com, said, “While it is quite a good thing that many people from different parts of the world are taking an interest in learning about cyberbullying, we at NoBullying.com look forward to the day where it is a thing of the past. We want to end this epidemic once and for all through education and kindness. We believe learning is the best way to end it.”
He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and off line. According to Mulligan, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.
NoBullying.com features many pages dedicated to parents, teens, teachers, health professionals as well as posts related to cyber safety and the latest news about law making concerning curbing bullying worldwide as well as inspirational bullying poems and bullying quotes.
