Being picked on was different when you were young, right? Aside from walking five miles uphill in the snow both ways to school, you had to deal with getting stuffed into lockers, spitballs and the dreaded 3:05 p.m. fight at the flag pole. Today’s kids don’t know that struggle. What they do know if the ubiquity of social media, which has opened up a whole new universe of bullying.

You may feel helpless when it comes to safeguarding your children from the dangers of cyberbullying. You are not alone. Fortunately, society is more aware than ever when it comes to identifying and eradicating this divisive behavior. There is no place for any kind of bullying in our schools. Let’s keep working to make school a positive, safe place for all of our students.
