cyberbullying research center   "Some girl in my daughter's grade started a rumor that my daughter is a lesbian, this got all over school, not happy with that she starting texting her with all this comments. I spoke to her mom and ask her to please make her stop. Well big mistake...she post comments on Facebook, mocking her. We will start counseling very soon, I'm afraid for my daughter safety, not sure how bad this is affecting her, and she tells me that she's trying to avoid them in school. This is a terrible experience that no child have to go thru." (Mother of 14 year-old girl from Suffolk, NY)

What They're Saying...
"Sameer's presentations to students, faculty, and parents were all well-received. Students felt they could relate well to Dr. Hinduja. He understood the significance of technology in their lives and was respectful of them. He was funny and charismatic and connected with the kids appropriately. Sameer was able to deliver his message in a way that was accessible to all. One student compared the presentation to a similar one at her previous school and said that Sameer's was so much better because he understands and relates to adolescents so well. Probably the greatest testimonial to the effectiveness of his message is that students and faculty related that they checked and changed their Facebook settings and culled their friends list as a result of the assembly. Parents were very thankful to receive information in a way that could open up communication channels with their children. Sameer does not use scare tactics but simply presents the challenges and opportunities of social networking in an authentic and accessible way." David Rost, Dean of Students, Concord Academy
