A Media Specialist's Guide to the Internet: 32 Resource Links on Cyberbullying | Cyberbullying, it's not a game! It's your Life!!! | Scoop.it

The Internet has created a new place where bullies can go and anonymously taunt others. With last year's suicide of Rutgers freshman Tyler Clementi, (and many others) it has become more apparent that we need to help our students be more cyber smart and learn about why bullying is something to be taken seriously. It is never too early to educate our kids about the dangers of cyberspace. Here are 32 places you can use.

BulliesOut: Working with the Bullied, Bullies, and Bystanders

BulliesOut: Working with the Bullied, Bullies, and Bystanders | Cyberbullying, it's not a game! It's your Life!!! | Scoop.it

Bullying is clouded by a fog of silence.

Bullying and bullying behaviours are recognised as one of the more contributing factors in cases of non or diminished attendance at school. The stresses placed on the targets of bullying have far reaching effects on the emotional health and wellbeing, educational successes and subsequent life chances.

 

BulliesOut provides much needed help support and information to individuals, schools, youth and community settings affected by bullying. The charity was established in May 2006 and the determination and tireless work of its team ensures that thousands of young people are helped and supported through this cruel act each year.

Montclair and the rest of our society cannot accept malignantly aggressive behavior perpetrated by people, whether adults or juveniles.

 

For young people, who are physically, intellectually and psychologically developing, intolerable actions can cause both immediate and lasting damage.

Hurtful actions committed by youths against other youths are dangerous, destructive — and unacceptable.

 

Adults who bully and brutalize other adults or children face misdemeanor or felony charges. But our nation's laws are much less focused on abuse perpetrated by minors against other young people. Police officers and school officials generally are reluctant to levy consequential penalties on young people, legitimately noting that a wayward youth may have failed to recognize the consequence of her or his bad action.

Teen's Suicide Sparks Anti-Bullying Legislation | wgrz.com

Teen's Suicide Sparks Anti-Bullying Legislation | wgrz.com | Cyberbullying, it's not a game! It's your Life!!! | Scoop.it

Klein's bill says "harassing a child using electronic communication" would fall under 3rd Degree Stalking, punishable with up to a year in prison. If that harassment caused suicide, the bully could face 2nd Degree Manslaughter charges and up to 15 years in prison.

 

"Do something about your children, control your children," Klein said at the news conference outside the Manhattan Criminal Courthouse. "Otherwise they're going to be punished under a very tough New York State statute."

 

Because bullies exist beyond New York State, others think federal legislation is needed.

Cyberbullying grief highlighted instead...

 

Parents who think their tearaway hacking kiddies are seeing all sorts of things they shouldn't online are buying into some of the top myths about children on the web, according to a new report.

 

EU Kids Online, a research project based at the London School of Economics and Political Science, talked to kids across Europe about their online habits and discovered that they are both more and less clued up than their parents reckon.

Adults are gradually coming to realize the compromises to their privacy in social media.

 

Adults are gradually coming to realize the compromises to their privacy in social media. Younger people, with a love of congregating and communicating, are less prepared to anticipate pitfalls in online messaging. It’s a trend that can leave them open to bullying.


While Nova Scotia has set up a task force to address cyberbullying, a program is circulating in an effort to instil prevention in the classroom directly through students.


Aggression expressed online has made headlines lately, with reports of young people driven to suicide after having been subjected relentlessly to online attacks.

'Bullycide’ bill would protect new Yorkers from cyberbullying

 

Albany — A bill introduced this week by Sen. David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Orange) would make “bullycide” a felony if adopted.

 

The bill would expand second-degree manslaughter to include death by cyberbullying when a perpetrator intentionally or recklessly causes a victim to commit suicide.

 

===> It would be punishable by up to 15 years in prison. <===

There are many opinions on the outrageous and desperate measures today’s youth take.

 

Children find no other alternative to impulsively do something, without thinking of the future consequences of their actions.

 

Perhaps many children find it necessary to escape the reality of living by thinking the world is better off without them. Their young minds have to be nurtured to accept that which is and truthfully realize change can not happen without their presence.

It’s not the kind of letter you would think the secretary of education would get, but Arne Duncan said he gets them all the time.

 

“I’m being bullied at school and on the bus, and I’m afraid of telling somebody because they might hear about it and do something bad to me,” a girl from Texas wrote in a letter to the Obama administration’s top education official.

 

“I don’t really like telling on somebody, but I’ve told the principal and [he] didn’t do anything about it. I’ve considered suicide but that won’t help anything; that will only hurt my family. Please give me advice about what to do.”

 

Such things are happening in schools across the country, Duncan said during a Sept. 21 summit on bullying prevention.
