    Explain how it isn't, because if say for example, you are getting hit up on facebook and you let it keep going you are a glutton for punishment.

But just as the internet intensifies a person's interactions with people to the extreme, they can in nearly all cases be just as easily shut out.

    I have to agree with this.

    In most parts of the world the problem of hurt feelings is way down on the list to what is really happening in their lives.

    Unfortunately most American kids don't know anything about that kind of stuff.

    Or maybe they are the strong people that can't understand how words on a screen can have any effect at all in a persons life. They are meaningless.

I look at them like who cares but it really upsets them because they have made it their life. There are fights and threats all the time over cyber bullying. Parents get called in as do the police from time to time. It is easy, but naive, to just say let it go but if it is your life, because you kinda have no life, then it is very real.
    That is because we are raising a pathetic generation. I am worried about the outcome of these weak kids that are so intent on what other people say.

    Absolutely. When you see what kids go through with this online harassment and absolutely vile behavior, it should make anyone's stomach churn.

    Why not teach the kid that words on a screen have no consequences in their lives, therefore they are easily ignored.

    Because you would have to be an absolute fool to believe that. It's the same kids that are physically and/or verbally beating on them in their schools, in their neighborhoods. They just find another avenue to spread it even further. I've seen it, I've read it.

    Seriously. If you have that little of an understanding of what people do with cyber bullying, you're a damn fool and I hope to Christ you never have a kid that has to go through with it so you can continue to utter such ignorant trash.

    Why is it when cyberbullying is being discussed, the subject jumps to actual real life events?

    If the child is being beat up at school, that is a police matter.

    Words on a screen have no effect on their life whatsoever, and the parents have a duty to teach them that fact.

    You really should keep your name calling to a minimum when you don't know what you are talking about.

    Man this is hilarious. Of course I go to real life events. I know kids that go through it right now, and it is serious. I can really tell you have no idea what you are talking about. It's a police matter? Guy, if it happens at the school, it's also a school and outside school matter. You can't isolate bullying to one department and one avenue of life. Do you know how rare it is that parents even go the legal route to solve physical attacks? Do you even know what happens to these kids once they do? Do you know the statistical impact of cyber bullying with suicide?

    No, of course you don't. I bet you don't spend much time talking to these kids every year either to find out what happens and what their lives are like. But you're more than willing to call these kids pansies behind a computer.

    We are not going to agree on this.

    You can allow bullying to continue, while I would stop it right away and have.

    Parental involvement needs to happen, not parent to kid, but parent to parent.

    Like I said, if the child is assaulted and the parent does nothing, who's fault is that?
