Cyber harassment is considered one of the most important risks of our children and teenagers' online daily interactions. Most existing preventive programs are designed by and for adults, not accounting for the experiences and views of the potential victims. The approach of preventive socialization emphasizes the need for the participation of minors as well as the importance of acknowledging their voices to develop successful preventive actions in this field. By the means of communicative content analysis, in this article, authors contrast the research state of the art with the voice of the very minors. From this analysis, a series of ground rules are defined to be considered in the design of actions aimed at preventing cyber harassment.
