I dont even understand what kids are being bullied about these days. Not having a good facebook page,ok??? Not being invited to social networking chat rooms,huh???? This whole new tech boom has me confused how to even help a child being bullied because I cannot grasp the subjects they are being bullied about.

I agree... any Facebook, twitter, tumblr accounts my kids have, I have access to at anytime.... I wont put up with my kids or other kids bullying my kids.

I've never experienced this...where people tell others not to like you. I can only imagine that it must be terrible. I hope kids get taught to never do this sort of bullying. 8-)

Exactly, kids have no clue what's really going on.

I see this all the time. Especially with girls. Ive seen FB pages, for example, "Hate Blah blah blah" and it will be an entire fb page dedicatedt o hating this one particular person. There will be pictures and so many "likes" for the page. it's really sad. Why wouldn't facebook monitor these type of accounts? I think they need to do a better job of verifying accounts.

Ive been bullied on social media and it is not fun. I commented on a post that was on fb but made public and said something and people were just telling me i was this or that, then commenting on my pictures and spelling and grammer. Made no sense. It was over a video posted and asked for thoughts. A lot of people agreed with me, but those who didn't called me names, commented on pics, made assumptions and when I tried to defend myself, the abuse got worse. I finally deleted my posts and blocked the site which had originally posted the article and video. It was horrible! And im an adult. So just imagine a young child taking this type of abuse from others.... It is horrible!

It is hard to believe that you cant just turn of the computer and ignore them it has become so mainstream now and kids use it in the wrong ways

Being alone, having ABSOLUTELY NO FRIENDS.. in school.. that is the worst feeling EVER! OKAY.. I grew up in a time... a LONG TIME AGO, (not in a galaxy far far away).. but in a time before PC's, internet, texting, FB, etc.. so, of course, there was no such thing as cyber bullying. But, it didn't matter, I stood out, I did not know what to do to look right, wear right, and even if I did, my father died years before, my mother and I were baring surviving on SSI, so, no 'cool clothes' .. etc.

In 9th grade, of the 2 friends I had-one had transferred to a catholic school at the beginning of the year, and the other-moved to Florida halfway through... so, here I was in Jr. High, 9th grade, being tormented on a daily basis in GYM, the HALLWAYS, STUDY HALL, (I took extra classes, so no lunch, !!!) and later, I realized, in a Classroom.............

The worse day I believe I ever had in school? I returned after having been out for a week with bronchitis. This English teacher handed me a test that the others took on the Friday,or Thursday before. I said to him that I did not have the textbook, nor did not know about reading this.. (it was on Shakespeare..I still remember this-don't most of us?) . Any how, this teacher told me I should have had a 'FRIEND' :oops: come get my homework assignments, and my books out of my locker..this Teacher :twisted: , i still remember his name.. and I do not remember most of my teachers names.. gave me the test, and I sat there crying, doing the test.. I got a 50 on it-half of the test was basically 'translating' what the characters were saying into 'modern language', the other part, well, it was a rehash of the play that I DID NOT READ. This teacher did not LIKE ME, KNEW I would FAIL, and would not give me 1 DAY. (I had had a schedule block, and was in a 'regular class, instead of an 'honors class', I had FAILED the first book report-I could NOT read, no matter how hard I tried, the 1st book-Bridge over the River Kwai'(sp?)-I just couldn't get into the book, concentrate on it.=He spoke to me, and SWORE I just had an attitude about not being in the honors class. I didn't have an attitude at all, but maybe shyness gave him this? Or, maybe this was his FAVORITE book? Who knows, he just had it in for me, but I did not realize that teachers too could be bullies, not until YEARS LATER.) So, not only in that year did I not have any friends, but I also had a teacher who would go out of his way to bully me. (this was halfway through the year, and he had not done this before -given a test on the 1st day back to anyone.)

BTW... a LOT OF IT -not with the Teacher, but with others, I was SO AFRAID of being BEATEN UP.. that I avoided things all together.. let them pick on me, take money, do things for them. I think back now-should have, could have.. and WISH.. I knew how to fight. I might have been suspended for a while, but MAYBE it would have stopped, at least for a while????
