Cyber-bullying and the affects of it
While the front page on online news sites seem to get updated every day with stories on how students took their own life due to harassment that they had received online. Would the bullies still do it face-to-face or do they just hide behind a computer screen.
People cannot take bullying online and we need to watch what are kids our doing so we can try and prevent them from taking their own life. People would rather be anonymous behind a computer screen and attack someone to the point where they take their own life. Most people do not see what they did wrong when they bully some. In these articles kids took their own life because they could not handle it anymore.
Social networking sites seem to become the problem with privacy. We need to learn how to protect are privacy and not get things posted about us that can affect us and how we function. We have to deal with bullies and report them to someone if you are being harassed. I know when I was bullied online by co-workers I told my mom and then called my boss and forward them to her so they could see what was said. Bullying can happen over the stupidest things.
Cyber-bullying can lead to depression and parents need to watch what their kids do keep an eye on them and what is going on. Not try and be a cool parent and sit back we need to take action to try and prevent kids from being bullied online. We need to talk to patents or an adult telling them you are being bullied.
The internet is the reason for all this chaos it feels. With privacy being an issue, and kids’ lives at stake we need to keep an eye on them and make sure nothing bad happens. If they give up because they cannot take what kids are doing to them. Then we fail as adults or parent to help protect are kids. We have to watch what happens to them and keep an eye on what they are doing so we can help are kids out and prevent them from taking their own lives.
