Kids will bully. They will badmouth, hit, and cyber bully. Lets face it they are little donkey hinnies. Schools are well set to handle physical assault when it is reported, less able to address verbal assault, and toothless against cyber assault. Cyber assault needs to be prosecuted by the police with firm consequences for the guilty. Public scorn will help. Uncensored (except the victims identity) transcripts of the assault, and identity of the offender should be public information. Show them for the donkey hinnies they are. Trolls act from cover believing they will never have to own their words. Lets surprise them

Conversely, when we are told by someone when we are not liked by them, we need to handle it better. (yes, this is the Cliffs Notes version)
