Why You Should Talk to Kids About Cyberbullying [INFOGRAPHIC] | Bullying and Anna Kate's Opinion | Scoop.it

Almost one in four of teens claimed to be a target of cyberbullying and two-thirds of all teens have witnessed cruel behavior online, notes the Teen Internet Behavior study.

But only one in 10 parents are aware that their teens could be targets of cyberbullying.

In this situation, cyber bullying, I would stand up when if I get bullied on the internet. I agree with is articles information. Facebook is one of the largest social websites and is the most common place for cyber bullying. I truly believe that bullying face to face is the most common type of bullying. When people meet together, the bullys can make fun of your fashion or the way you look. While on the internet, it is more of a mental break down. I don't agree that one in ten parents know that their child is being cyber bullied because some parents check on their childs account and see if anything is ok and there is no cyber bullying.

I agree with you, Johnny. I'm pretty sure that more than "one in ten" parents know that their child has been cyber-bullied. Since tecnology is changing rapidly, maybe soon the only form of bullying will be cyber-bullying. The only thing I disagree about was that Facebook has the most cyber-bullying. I believe that the most cyber-bullying comes from text messages since the victims is the only one to read it. Standing up to the bully on the Internet is good, but not as good as standing up in real life. Also, any type of bullying is bad, and I think that all bullying is equally bad. I hope you enjoyed this article.

This article is written for parents whose children were or are bullied. Most of the time parents don't feel the same pain as children do. They don't understand what it is like to be bullied.This article is very helpful for parents yet sometimes there are no solutions. This article is very helpful for parents yet sometimes there is no solution. I think it is wonderful to get bullying articles out into the world so people can read them and wont bully.

For Bullied Bus Monitor, Karen Klein, Donations to Take Hurt Away

For Bullied Bus Monitor, Karen Klein, Donations to Take Hurt Away | Bullying and Anna Kate's Opinion | Scoop.it
An online fund-raising drive for a 68-year-old Rochester woman who was brutally taunted by a group of 12- and 13-year-old boys has proved hugely successful.
Anna Kate Alford's insight:

These boys were not thinking when they put this video on YouTube. The boys might have been bullyed or saw something to make them think "Hmm... maybe that's the way people such act." I beileve that this cruelity to this woman was very unessicary and should not happened. The boys' motavation was that they wanted to get famous on the internet. Maybe, the boys didn't want this on the internet but it might have been posted as a mistake. Even if the boys didn't mean to hurt her feelings, they shouldn't have even thought of making fun an innocent person.

In my opinion, these boys did this because they thought that they would become popular, and they would gain attention. i think that the seventh grade boys posted this to be funny. This action was a mistake! If they thought that there was any humor in this, they were just plain desprite for attention. There is nothing funny about this. The boys probably didn't have an inspiration to this horrible act. My response to this is NOT laughter. My response is anger and sadness. 

Carter Griffin's comment, January 25, 2013 7:51 AM
I believe that these boys bullied this woman to amuse their peers and gain popularity among their friends. I think they probably uploaded the video to YouTube for the same reason. They thought they would be famous for bullying this woman, and they are, but not in a good way. These kids should be ashamed for what they did. This is just plain cruel.
TrippVaughn's curator insight, January 28, 2013 8:00 PM

     I think the boys were insecure and wanted to become popular. They probably were insecure about their weight, the amount they sweat, and their hearing. They also thought that doing this would make them popular and cool. 

 

     They posted the video on youtube because the boys probably thought that doing this would make them cool and popular. If they spread the word about it the boys thought that it would make them more popular.

 

     The boys'motivation was to feel better about themselves and to gain attention by becoming popular.

 

     This article horrified and sickened me while it brightened my day at the end. it is just shocking that anybody would do such a crime, especially to a grammother. The way Max Sidorov responded is just amazing. he raised massive amounts of money for Mrs. Klein. Finnaly, raising money for Max Sidorov is a great idea. Giving kindness back to the giver is the best way to respond to anything like this.
