Take Cyber bullying Seriously

This is no SHOCKER about the depression part, but cyber-bullying is bound to increase and it's something a lot of schools don't know how to handle. I don't know how to handle it. Well, I think I would have a hard time handling in person bullying too. What a nightmare. I just can't imagine. I actually got an email from a mom who is dealing with bullying right now. She ended up transferring her kid to a different school. Yikes! That is drastic! Do you have a good solution for handling bullying?

FROM NBC: Kids who are victims of cyber bullying at school are at greater risk for depression than those doing the bullying. Researchers from the National Institutes of health say these findings are different from traditional bullying -- where depression rates are highest in those who both bully others and are bullied themselves. Because cyber bully victims often don't see their harassed, researchers say they are more likely to feel isolated and helpless to defend themselves against the attacks. Being bullied can negatively affect a student's grades, social skills and general feelings of well being.
