Mean message

Racecar73 – mean message

Dear Alex,
I got a mean message online from someone at school. They say I'm stupid and ugly. I feel sad and worried :-(. I don't know what to do.
Please help me!

Hi Racecar73!
No one should make comments online that are mean or hurtful. You shouldn't answer messages that are mean, or that make you feel uncomfortable. Tell you parents, a teacher or another adult. They can help you block and report the message.
I hope that helps.

Star44 – sharing passwords

Hi Alex,
My best friend wants me to tell her my passwords. She says that friends don't have secrets and we must share everything.
What should I do?

Hi Star44!
Passwords are private. You shouldn't share passwords, except with parents or carers. If someone has your password, they can use your account. You can be best friends without sharing passwords! Explain this to your friend. I'm sure she'll understand. If you're still worried, you should talk to your parents or another adult. Good luck.



Do you agree with the advice that Alex gives? What other advice would you give?

Alex always says that if you have a problem, you should tell an adult. Can you talk to your parents or a teacher? We think they will help you. Good luck!
