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.

'My School Is NOT Doing Enough About Bullying'

'My School Is NOT Doing Enough About Bullying' | Bullying | Scoop.it

Despite the school assemblies, the several warnings that are given to the bullies at school and the countless movies that try to get the point across that bullying can be more harmful than most people think, the job is just not getting done. In this era of technology, it's pretty safe to say that it's harder to hide from the bullies than it may have been 20 or 30 years ago. Some kids have to face it not only for seven hours at school, but also every hour beyond that because of the constant contact that can be made via text message or social media.

Divorce Children And Bullying

Divorce Children And Bullying | Bullying | Scoop.it
It is the parents' job to help their children learn how to deal with difficulties in life.

 

...Because they are exposed to and observe high-conflict adults, children and youth of all ages model destructive behaviors at school. Parents are role models for their children and abusive behavior can be inter-generational. This direct link to bullying increases the pressure for separating parents to learn ways to reduce conflict in their interactions with each other.

If you are a separating parent who learns your child is bullying at school, here are some specific tips to help you remedy the situation:
If your separation includes high levels of conflict with the other parent, find ways to reduce the conflict.

Help your child learn productive ways to express anger.

Clarify that even though the family is going through a lot of changes, you will not tolerate bullying or mean-spirited behavior of any kind. Believe it or not, children of all ages find security in clearly set limits.

Stay actively involved in your child's school activities.

Make your child a priority during the separation.

Effects of Bullying Last Into Adulthood, Study Finds

Effects of Bullying Last Into Adulthood, Study Finds | Bullying | Scoop.it

Victims of bullying at school, and bullies themselves, are more likely to experience psychiatric problems in childhood, studies have shown. Now researchers have found that elevated risk of psychiatric trouble extends into adulthood, sometimes even a decade after the intimidation has ended.

The new study, published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry on Wednesday, is the most comprehensive effort to date to establish the long-term consequences of childhood bullying, experts said.
