Introduction Section- INTRODUCTION SECTION SHOULD BE AROUND 2 PAGES LONG

Cyberbullying is currently a global concern that is prevalent in childhood phases. The term was coined by Tokkunaaga—a website owner, as digital media actions aimed at harming or causing discomfort through mean-spirited posts (Ferrara et al., 2018). Considering that a third of global internet users are individuals below 18 years, the pervasiveness rate of cyberbullying among the young population is gradually increasing, with its victimization ranging up to 72 percent and perpetration up to 41% among American students between 10 to 19 years, as of 2015 (Zhu et al., 2021). It poses significant risks associated with mental issues, physical health-wellness problems, academic performance difficulties, and emotional suffering (Vaillancourt, Faris, & Mishna, 2016). Research has also revealed that there are psychosocial strains involved with cyberbullying relating to behavior problems (Peled, 2019). However, very few works assess the relationship between cyberbullying and such psychosocial strains, specifically the effects of the former on the latter, which is the primary purpose of this study. Childhood cyberbullying severely impacts the social relationships of both cyberbullying victims and perpetrators.

Method

Usually 2 pages

Participants should be a separate paragraph: how many participants, how will you recruit them, what compensation will you provide if any

Materials should also be another sub heading under methods (level 2)

Procedure should be the third sub heading under methods at a level 2

The study’s population of interest is children and adolescents involved in cyberbullying, aged between nine to sixteen, and identified as either male or female. This research will employ a longitudinal design whereby it will conduct various online surveys to acquire data. First, from the numerous volunteers obtained via online platforms, it will perform a criteria-based purposive sampling to select a suitable sample that will be monitored through online entries for some time. The criteria ensure that the respondents fit the desired description of cyberbullying and age and give information about other relevant factors concerning the participants. Secondly, the study will feed the collected data into the SPSS Software, a statistical data analysis tool that will process the descriptive input information to give numerical outcomes that reveal the presence and intensity of cyberbullying effects on cyberbullying victims and perpetrators’ social relationships.
