While adults often understand the hurt that is typically caused by physical bullying, many of them either underestimate or do not realize the far-reaching and potentially devastating impact that cyberbullying can have on a victim. Because cyberbullying occurs online, often under the guise of anonymity, it can be especially vicious and intimidating. And, because it can be "witnessed" by scores of online spectators and perpetrated 24/7, the impact is far-reaching and victims often feel they have nowhere to hide.

In part 1 of this 2-part series, join Brent Maguire as he provides an overview of what cyberbullying is and how it occurs. He will discuss the various forms of cyberbullying and how it differs from "traditional" bullying. He will also explore the impact of cyberbullying and some of the challenges it presents.

Thank you, this isn't just happening to kids. It seems that anyone who was a bully will find a way to bully and an excuse for why it's alright. We need to focus on the bullies!
I did not get my first smart phone until I was in college. Dealing with cyber bullying is completely new to me. But since children today are growing up with this technology it is important for me to learn how to deal with it and help children to use it in a healthy way.
