In addition, new-age children are also victims of false content and cyberbullying. The worst cases of cyberbullying were reported in girls’ cases.
The research revealed that 60 per cent of girls had mental problems due to low sleep and cyberbullying. This means that many girls have gone into depression too. On the other hand, 12 per cent of the boys had to go through mental unrest because of this. Experts say good sleep and exercise can relieve discomfort.
