Karen is a very devout teenager who leads a prayer meeting every morning by the high school flag pole. Many boys and girls are simply drawn to Karen as a friend because of her sweet nature and hopeful innocence. Other girls in her school, however, feel threatened by Karen’s piety and commitment to holy living, and they begin to drum up ideas to expose her as a fraud. Specifically, they begin to spread rumours via the High School’s social network on MySpace.com that Karen is sleeping around with the boy’s track team. Karen is alerted to the online rumours by a close friend and is heartbroken. She tells her teachers and pastor, who then contact the school administration.
What would you do if you were the principal in this situation?

Kids Helpline is Australia's only free, private and confidential, telephone and online counselling service specifically for young people aged between 5 and 25.
This is a great source for children who need help, even though many don't use it as they can be scared to call someone. As talking to someone can help so much and the fact that you don't know or have to see the person means that this person is impartial. They have a clear perspective and will not judge you or make you feel like your problems are not important. At Kids help line every child who calls is important and is valued. :):)

I watched this movie and it is so emotional. I feel that this movie should be shown to school children, so that they can see what can happen, I know they are told all about this at school but this movie may be able to open their minds to the fact that cyber bullying can start off as a silly, funny thing, but it can lead them into dangerous situations and it can hurt so many people.
