Cyber bullying? How would you go about this situation?
This is actually an issue i'm having with my younger dd (10) but the advice i get here I know will be the best on cafemom.
My dd is 10 and in 5th grade. She has a friend who is 11 and in 6th grade. The friend has been getting some really horrible disgusting comments sent to her phone via something called Kick. My teen dd says its some kind of messenger. My 10 year old does not have a cell phone. I'm talking really bad things like death threats and rape threats etc... the kid doesnt know where they are coming from. (altho i think she herself is behind it) So she's going thru the blame game, at least mom is. First she blamed another friend of my dd It wasnt her. Then she went on to blame someone else etc etc. etc.. until she decided to blame my dd. Before my dd's name was thrown in the mix i stayed out of it. I wanted nothing to do with and I really don't like my kid to have anything to do with the girl thats getting the threats. First it was the rumors that it was my kid. Then came the accusation by the girls mother. I may not have handled it all that well.
