Everyone has witnessed bullying in classrooms, on the school bus, in the locker room in every place where children and teens gather. Teachers, coaches, parents, bystanders, the victims and even those who bully are impacted by this behavior. Left unchecked it can lead to depression, school phobia, lack of community, poor academic achievement, and even suicide.

Cyberbullying is the use of technology to insult, harass, expose, or humiliate one or more persons. It is the “schoolyard bully” in cyberspace! Sexting, texting social media, chat rooms, blogs and even Twitter are some of the ways through which cyberbullying can occur. In any case, cyberbullying is abuse and is of serious concern for parents, educators, and law enforcement.
