Sue Scheff: Cyberbullying is becoming a serious concern among teens

teencyberbully.jpgMore and more news articles, media and others are finally taking Cyberbullying seriously. As both a victim and survivor of being abused in Cyberspace – I know first hand how important this subject is.
Kids today need to be aware of what lingers online as well as take precautions not to feed into Cyberbullys and their tactics of invading a child’s privacy.
As a parent, you can take steps to protect your kids online. Know what they are doing and where they are going in Cyberspace. It is almost as important as knowing where they are going when they leave your house! Take Cyberspace seriously!
A recent news article by the Associated Press is one of many that are bringing this awareness to parents.
I always encourage parents to consider Reputation Defender/MyChild to help protect your children online, especially in the social networking sites such as MySpace and others.
