Parents: do you know what cyberbullying is? It is common, online bullying and many kids are deeply affected by it. Some statistics show that though boys may be more typical bullies at school, facee-to-face, girls are more aggressive with electronic bullying. And 1/3 of kids and teens report that they've been bullied online. Our children are exposed to so much and it is imperative we pursue the scope of information generated to them, protecting them whenever possible. Check out these websites for more information on cyberbullying and internet protection: www.internetsafetyeducator.com, www.stopcyberbullying.org (this one has sections for kids, preteens, and teens), www.safety.lovetoknow.com (has an entire section on cyberbullying and internet safety, as well as other aspects of safety for your family).
