This article focuses on the topic of bullying and cyberbullying in Russian schools, iits spread among children and teenagers, and the danger posed by these phenomena. It shows the connection between bullying and cyberbullying with such a phenomenon as aggression, which is a natural need, but normally should be directed in a healthier direction than causing harm to other people. The author provides a classification of hostile actions on the Internet, describes the harm caused by cyberbullying due to anonymity and the phenomenon of disinhibition, which is associated with a lack of feedback and control. An additional danger of cyberbullying is that children tend to hide these incidents from adults for fear of losing access to the Internet. The article provides data from a survey of students in the Sverdlovsk region on school bullying and cyberbullying. Although a relatively small percentage of children experience violence, it requires special attention and consideration. Since aggression is a natural human need, it is recommended to develop methods of directing it in a constructive direction, including on the Internet.
