Caroline Herman's insight:

1. Cyber bullying was described a virus being spread by things such as peer pressure and envy. Do you think that is a correct way to describe bullying or do you think it reflects stopp bully stop? Elaborate.

2.The virus can easily be spread to any victim of palgue. Do you like spreading motavation like the video suggested will make an empact on the issue or just rise awarness just for it to fall again? How can we keep this virus from becoming an epicdemic?

3.Teachers and parents are said to usally be unaware of their child being possed by the virus. How do you think adults can become more aware of the problem and if they do become aware do you think it will help the problem or make it worse for them to step in?

4.Why do think girls are less upfront about their bullying? The video said that girls are most likley the host and the victims.

I think that peer pressure and envy are a part of bullying on the web. This is definetly realistic because people think they can say anything they want on their phones or on facebook and get away with it. Yes spreading helpful messeges and posting nice things about the victim will definetly help fight bullies. To keep the virus from spreading, can just not say mean things on the web and if someone does say something mean just report it or mark it as spam. Yes, parents need to becuase more aware of what is happening at school, so that they can punish the bully and make sure they don't do it agein. Girls are definetly more secretive about their bullying. Girls bully with mean looks usally, texts and rumors not upfront .

I agree with you that bullying on the web in protrayed in a realictic way.I don't think that we can stop the virus by posting nice comments on the web. I will spreaqd awarness ,but it will not come close to ending the issue. The virus is to widespread for one nice comment to undo all the mean ones. I in some one ways think parents beacoming more aware will make it worse, If parents try to monitor our computer use we will probably develop more sneaky ways to bully on the web. I do agree with what you have to say about girls. Girls tend to hide their feelings because we don't fight with fists. This means that, cyber bullying is how many girls attack.

This story reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because both kids are bullied for being different. August is bullied for not looking "normal" and the boy in the movie is bullied for being smarter than "normal." People who join in on bullying are less likely to get bullied themselves. They can become friends with the bully and escape the torments of being a victim. In my opinion, parents are not very useful in preventing bullying. In most cases, kids don't want to tell their parents that they are being bullied, or they will sound like a snitch. The role that the kids play is much more crucialthan the parents. Obviously, your parents are going to stick up for you, but what you really need is for other kids to help you. If the bullies finds themselves out-numbered, they may back down.

This movie reminds me of Wonder because it is about a boy who is getting bullied because of his physical appearance. I think join bullies because they think that the bully is cool and knows if he's on the bully's side, then he won't be the next target. Parents can do speeches and assemblies to tell kids how to prevent bullying, but, at the end of the day, if a bully wants to hurt someone physically or emotionally, they will despite actions of adults. The role of adults is smaller because bullying usually occurs when adults are not around. Also, most adults don't really understand bullying because it is different now than it was when they were growing up. Parents can prevent bullying by making sure their kid isn't the bully and helping their kid. Kids can help by being nice to kids that get bullied a lot or telling their friend if they are bullying someone, because usually the bully doesn't even realize the extent of their bullying until later.

This trailer reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because of a couple different reasons. The first one, of course, is that he was bullied at school, but it also reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because he did not want to go to school because of the mean kids, which relates to August's excuse. I think that it would be tempting to join in on bullying because the bullies are usually the cool kids, so you feel like agreeing with the cool kids will make you cool. I think that parents play a big role in bullying because a victim of bullying to tell his mom or dad, without anyone knowing. I would think, and hope, that the bullys' parents do not want the children to bully, so if the bullied child's parents told the bully's parents, the bully would most likely get into trouble. However, a common reason for bullying is a lack of a family life, so in some cases, telling the bully's parents may not stop anything. I think that a parent's role in bullying is smaller than the child's, because the child has to stand up for himself at one point, and have the parents as a backup plan. If the child can learn to be strong and stand up for himself, he will eventually be strong enough to not be to hurt by bullying. THis will let the victim be able to overcome bullying completely, and the whole problem will be solved.
