Young people have fully embraced the Internet and other communications technologies. They send emails, create their own web sites, post personal news in blogs, and send instant messages via computers and cell phones.
Unfortunately there are increasing reports of teens and occasionally younger children using these technologies to post cruel text or images to bully their peers or engage in other aggressive online behavior.
This site provides resources for adults to become acquainted with these issues as well as how to address problems with children and teens. While not comprehensive, these sites reflect broad experience by families, schools, and law enforcement.
What is Cyberbullying? Cyberbullying is when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies or mobile phones. (http://stopcyberbullying.org)
