Last week the 12th Annual Wired Safety Summit convened in Washington, D.C. and brought together members including teens, tweens, lawmakers, parents, and companies who are dedicated to promoting cybersafety. While the day is filled with inspiration provided by passionate kids who volunteer their time as TeenAngels (ages 13-18) and TweenAngels (7-12 years), it’s also sobering to hear the ways they have been affected by different kinds of cyberbullying.
