cyberbullying research center   "Cyber Bullying is a serious topic! I was bullied and began to cut myself... You may want to know why... time to tell I was bullied, stalked, and harassed. Never to my face but online the people who bullied me would make fake pages and put me on them saying I'm how and everything I'm willing 'to do' with a guy, but nothing on them were true... They told people to walk up to me and ask me if I was a hoe, lesbian, dyke, slut, pregnant.. etc. I couldn't take it anymore I was on the verge of suicide and when you're going through this you want to handle it alone, but truthfully you can't. So I began to cut. For everything I was going through. I got help. I came clean to a trusted adult and they told my mom everything my mom got very upset and began to take pills to solve her problems. I got madder and cut even more then I finally said no! STOP I haven't cut in a month and 5 days... i use to cut every day. So to wrap this up I'm done cutting my mom's still on pills and I told the police (about the bullying) and guess what. The sites and texts are gone!!! :)" (14 year-old girl from MN)

What They're Saying...
"Dr. Hinduja's presentation on cyberbullying did a great job of outlining issues caused by new technologies. School professionals need to be aware of the problems so that they can be addressed in an appropriate way. Dr. Hinduja had great suggestions for both prevention of problems and steps to take when problems occur." Greg Galtere, Principal, Boyertown Junior High West, Boyertown, PA
