Teens Speak Out on Cyberbullying

Cyber Bullying

Cyberbullying, or online bullying, is oft-reported in the news. But what is it, exactly? To clarify the issue for adults, young writers from the online magazine YCTeen recently discussed their experiences and views of abuse and bad behavior online. They address why youth bully and others watch, how youth can respond, and how teachers and parents can help.

If you know a youth who has bullied or been bullied, please encourage the young person to call 1-800-RUNAWAY or visit www.1800RUNAWAY.org to talk about it.
