Cyberbullying

5

March

In last week’s PARADE, Rosalind Wiseman reported on “cyberbullying,” in which teens use online technology to hurt and humiliate each other. For young victims, cyberbullying can be as frightening as face-to-face aggression and cruelty. Cyberbullies use e-mail, instant-messages (IMs), cell phones, text messages, photos, videos and social networking sites to humiliate and threaten another.

Is cyberbullying a problem at your school? Have you or a friend been the victim of cyberbullying? What can schools or police do to stop it? Tell us your story.
