cyberbullying research center   "I was picked on in the 5th grade by having my stuff pushed off the table or having my belongings stolen. it went into 7th grade where i completely lost it, beat up the kid who was the leader of the bullies, and now he gives me the respect i deserve. Violence isn't usually the way to go, but in this case it helped a lot." (14 year old boy from MA)

What They're Saying...
"Thank you so much for the time you spent with the students at our school. Several parents and the Principal of our school, Ms. Rogers, told me stories of how you impacted our kids. One 8th grade girl who rarely says anything about her day at school, jumped in the car and said "Mom, we had the most amazing speaker today!" Another 8th grader had the bad idea to talk meanly about a 7th grader that night on Facebook and the 7th grader followed your advice to gather evidence and printed it out and brought it to the principal the next day. Game over! My son who had been arguing with me about me having access to get on his Facebook agreed to let me be his "friend" on that web site. He also went into his account and took himself off several networks and changed his privacy settings to "friends only" as per your advice. Your specific advice and wonderful demeanor touched so many of our children today. We look forward to bringing you back to our school again and again. Your advice is invaluable to children of all ages." Kirsten Flegel, VP Middle School PSTA, North Broward Preparatory School
