Cyber Bullying Month by Mrs. Dorothy Barron

      Cyber Bullying Month by Mrs. Dorothy Barron
                 “The Cyber Highway is that which many use; let us not abuse” by Mrs. Dorothy Barron

This month has been designated as Cyber Bullying month nationally to bring awareness to the problem of Cyber-bullying. There are at least two major things which citizens should be afforded as pursuant to law - a certain amount of freedom of privacy and freedom from harassment in the possession and/or use of electronic, cyber based products inclusive of all related systems.

Parents, it is important that your child understand the scope of the Internet and electronic cyber products (cell phones and other devices), as well as the far reaching consequences of which and perhaps most young people do not give much thought. Some unsuitable material posted now could not only harm them now, but later and prevent them from certain positions; jobs; appointments and/or worse should material now posted surface later in life.

Remind your child that a good rule of thumb to observe when situations arise involving bullying and whether online or offline, one should treat others the way they would like to be treated.

As a Public Service Announcement, we want to provide you with a link to the Blog and their article titled: How to Protect Your Kids from Cyber Bullying; the link:

The article lists various ways in which Cyber Bullying can occur and tips to assist and suggested actions which may be taken.

They also have a Video Challenge for teens 13-18 with prizes for winners. The deadline for entering is October 14, 2012.

We leave you with a Blog Post at Parents Taking Charge which offer tips for your consideration on the subject and covers Bullying offline; the title: Bullying and what You, the Parent Can do! The link is here:

Parents; know that which your children are engaged; you do not want your teaching, care and nurturing of your children adversely impacted and/or destroyed by others.
