Not to mention other kids see it and bring the issues to school, so simply staying off the computer doesn't really matter.much moreso than I though until I watched this movie with my girls about cyberbullying. I was always like, "Oh just get up and walk away from the computer if it's that bad," but that was a very simplistic way to look at it. It's more than that. Computers are encompassed in kids lives these days (most of them, anyway) and bullying online is even more harsh than in person.
Agreed. But schools really have no power to stop it. They can punish it at school in some states (including mine), but they cannot really stop it.We all know from experience that people are nastier online, and would say much worse things online, than in person. That kind of thing can be stopped, and should be stopped, but usually it's not, until it's too late.
