Recent high-profile teen suicides have drawn attention to the problem of bullying of all kinds, particularly cyber bullying. Kids tend to pick on those who are different in some way.

In 2009, 50 percent of students surveyed said they had been victims of bullies using electronic media. In a survey released on September 26, conducted by MTV and the AP, that figure had risen to 56 percent.
"I socialized with friends via electronics when I wasn't with them. I never expected that technology would become my worst nightmare.“ “These kids can be accessed around the clock through technology. There's really no escape."
In California, state lawmakers recently passed a new cyberbully rule. It allows officials to kick kids out of school if they are caught bullying other people on social networking Web sites. That includes sites such as Facebook.
Limit who you share your e-mail address and cell- phone number with, and never reveal social- networking-site passwords. Don't respond to a bully's electronic messages, but do save them. They are evidence that can help support your case. If bullying persists, tell a trusted adult who can help.
If you have a bully who just won't quit, it's time to call in some adult help. Tell your parents, teacher, or a trusted adult right away, and they can contact law enforcement authorities if necessary. You don't have to put up with... ask for 'help!
