No child should ever be bullied by their peers whether the bullying happens in person or online.
Today I’m over on DC Metro Moms talking about how students are waging online attacks on each other through social networking groups like Facebook. These attacks are personal, hateful, and are leaving kids emotionally scarred just like any face to face attack would.
While many school systems have policies that prosecute perpetrators of cyber bullying, others do not. As technology changes, curriculum in today’s schools needs to include education about becoming a responsibile digital citizen exercising proper online behavior.
Teaching students about online social behavior in schools needs to be combined with parental involvement at home. Later this week I’ll share some resources that you can use with your child to talk about cyber bullying. Raising awareness of the issues surrounding cyber bullying will hopefully help ensure that your child never victimizes one of their peers.
