well, this is a tough one. it walks the line, but im strong in my opinions. i think there are several ways to handle it. the first one would be, if the kids doing the bullying to your child, for instance are local, find out who their parents are and contact them about it. if that isnt an option, or doesnt work, block the person from your childs list, or have your child change their screen name. to begin with, i just dont think cyber bullying would even be a real issue if parents had enuff sense to do these simple things, ya know? above all, be aware of what your kids are doing online, even if they think youre intruding, you have a right to protect your child. and if your child doesnt come to you about it in the first place, then take a closer look at the relationship you have with them. the problem may be closer to home. all speaking hypothetically, of course. every situation is different.
