In this study, the cyberbullying risk related to self-esteem, social, and personal variables was investigated.Cyberbullying describes a pervasive form of aggressive behaviour aimed at offending victims whoare unable to protect themselves. A considerable sample of Italian young people were interviewed usingstandardized questionnaires. The results of the current study showed that, although few subjects wereaffected by cyberbullying (perpetrators and victims), a relationship exists between lower levels of selfesteemand cyberbullying risks. The role of parental control represents a good opportunity for thesubjects in preventing aggressive behaviour. In general, this study underlines the importance to designand realize specific didactical programs to prevent aggressive behaviour, and to increase parentalawareness about cyberbullying risks.
