A McGill University study has revealed that adolescents who experienced cyberbullying were 2.6-4.5 times more likely to have emotional, behavioral and substance use problems than those who experienced traditional bullying. Further, these problems were found to be more common among adolescents who had fewer family meals. According to the researchers, these findings indicate that regular family meals may protect against the effects of cyberbullying, possibly because of the family contact and communication these family meals involve.
