I get back up.
Resilience is emotional strength. In the online world you might face challenges such as being exposed to negative or hateful comments, or finding out someone is not who they say they are. These things are tough to deal with, but they don’t have to break us.

Some expert advice

  • Take it easy on yourself! Sometimes when something bad happens, the stress might make you more sensitive to normal day-to-day events and make things seem more extreme than usual.
  • During stressful times keep some routine and a ‘quiet’ space or activities where you can feel calm and relaxed.
  • Take care of yourself. This means making sure you eat well and get enough sleep! It’s easier to face problems when you feel your best.
  • Take things one step at a time. Don’t try have all the answers at once.
  • Do some things that help you feel good about yourself.
  • Seek support if needed. Kids Helpline (for ages 5 to 25 years) is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Know that it’s OK to make mistakes and not be perfect.This page is part of the Young and eSafe classroom resource.
