1.The types of bullying Amanda Todd was subjected to were cyber bullying and verbal bullying. Cyber is the one where one person harasses, scare and embarrass another person through internet, cell phones or any kind of technology. This is termed as cyber stalking if any adult is associated with this kind of an activity. In case of Amanda, she was cyber bullied through internet. Then later when people started judging her and name-calling then she was subjected to verbal bullying. Verbal bullying is when the perpetrators takes the help of words, statements and name calling to show power and strength and tries to achieve certain control over the victim. This type of bullying is difficult to be caught as they take place when adults are not around. However, Amanda was the victim when she uses to be in school where she had no friends and the students use to judge her (Wang, Iannotti & Luk, 2012).

2.The three consequences that Amanda Todd experienced because of being bullied are as follows:-

  • She got anxiety, depression and panic disorders.
  • She started taking drugs and alcohol.
  • She started cutting herself and indulged herself into self harming activities

People who get bullied maximum of the time they are found to experience negative physical, mental problems. They majorly come across depression, anxiety and self-harm when they start to feel that bullying is getting unbearable for them. This increases their feeling of sadness and loneliness further disturbing their sleep and eating habits (Wolke et al., 2013).  

 However, the attempts that she made to get out of this is that she changed her school, promised herself to never make friends and she use to sit all alone in the library and had her lunch. In case of Amanda, she was in a constant move to run away from the situation and so her attempts were never fruitful instead made her situation to worsen.

3.The strategy that parents, teachers and authorities could have used in this case that may have saved Amanda from committing suicide is described below-

  • Parents and teachers should have a clear communication with the child so that children get to know what cyber bullying is and what affects they can have on the victims. As filers in internet content does not have any effect for maximum of the cyber bullying thus guiding a student battle bullying by their own can be very helpful.
  • Children should be motivated and encourages to be open in front of their parents and teachers so that the bullies cannot count on the silence of the victim. Thus, openness is a crucial weapon to decrease or fight bullying. Bullies mainly takes the advantages to the secrecy and humiliation the victims have if they cannot be true or open to their elders thus students should have that openness to talk freely with their parents and teachers (Fisher et al., 2012).

4.The similarities in bullying across all these years are that they use to affect the mental and physical health then also and still today, it effects hugely. Bulling had this immense pressure that when become unbearable leads the victim to commit suicide (Hawton, Saunders & O'Connor, 2012). Another similarity can be that aggression has always been the base of bullying. Earlier also bullying was the outcome of suppressed aggression and until today it is the same.

As far as the differences in bullying is concerned that has taken place is that due to the evolution and growth of technology today cyber bullying is very common issue that was less few years back. Today no one actually stands up to stop a bully that which was seen earlier and was very effective because bullies get scared if someone stands by the victim raising their voice against bullying (Perren & Gutzwiller-Helfenfinger, 2012).

5.The factors that can lead a child to become a bully can be those children who see this types of behavior at home, those who feels powerless at home and so in need of power they become bullies. Those children who feel left out at home, the ones who have been over powered at home or are too pampered, and those children who lacks the sense of empathy, always dominating and possessive are likely to become bullies.

The ways to prevent the child from being bullied the child must have a clear concept that what bullies really mean so that they can at least understand what is really happening with them. Parents must be more engaged with their children so they do not feel left out and have that freedom to discuss things with their parents and lastly positive behavior in children should be rewarded (Hinduja & Patchin, 2014).
