CYBERBULLYING
My issue is cyberbullying and I researched that 42% of kids have been bullied while online,1 in 4 have had it happen more than once, 35% of kids have been threatened online and nearly 1in 5 have had it happened more than once, 21% of kids have recieved mean or threatening emails or messages. 58% of kids have admitted that someone has said mean and hurtfuk things to them online , and more than 4 out or 10 says it has happened more than once. Also 53% of kids admitted having said something mean or hurtful to another person online, more than 1 in 3 have done it more than once. 58% have not told there parent or adult about someone saying something mean or hurtful that happened to them online.
  • Cyberbullying is worst than phyical bullying because the victim is being humiliated froma large audiance. Also embarrasing pictures or taunts are being spread throughout a bunch of people. 6% of kids in the United Staes have been threatened or harassed online. In March of 2006 showed that 75 to 80% of 12 to 14 year old have been cyberbullied. 20% of kids under the age of 18 have received a sexual solication, cyberbullying is on the rise and it affects both genders. Female bullies preferred the use of text messaging harassment vs. face to face bullying.

  • Social networking sites could not be forms of cyberbullying because social sites such as Facebook, MySpace, tweeter, etc. is not to blame because the networking sites if for teenagers to wage their wars. Its also to teach students to be responsible online behaviors. It will also alienate teenagers instead of helping them to navigate social sites safely and without doing harm to others. Its the teenagers faults for cyberbullying others its not the social netwrking sites fault because its the teenagers/kids who are starting all this cyberbullying because these teenagers/kids who are on these websites like Facebook and MySpace, etc. are threatening and harassing there enimes.

  • Kids, teenagers usally cyberbully others because they are angry, entertainment, they get bored,getting back for revenge or maybe they are frustrated and there are more why people cyberbully others. Also they might find themselves to be a tough guy or girl and thinks its fun to see, and some people thinks its wrong so they stand up for the vitcim. Maybe if the vitim is new to the school some teenagers thinks its right to cyberbully the "new kid in school". Or maybe the "new kid on the block".
  • There are two kinds of cyberbullying, direct attacks and cyberbullying by proxy because cyberbullying by proxy often gets adults / parents involved in the harassment, also it is much more dangerous.

So the teenagers don't ask for help and instead of talking to someone about the situation they descide to kill them selfs cuase of how badly the bully is treating them.Parents should talk to their teenagers about cyberbullying and let them know that they are always there for you even adults from school.
