Cyber Bullying: The New Sticks and Stones

This program is designed for parents who want to learn more about cyberbullying, and what they can do in the event that they’re child is a victim or perpetrator. Cyberbullying involves the use of communication technologies such as the Internet, social networking sites, websites, email, text messaging and instant messaging to repeatedly harass someone. Cyberbullying has become a damaging activity from which there really is no escape, as no longer is bullying contained within the school, or on the playground.  Technology now allows for 24 hour a day harassment not only in school and on the playground, but also in the living room and the bedroom.
