Cyber bullying can be conducted 24 hours a day, seven days a week making the victim a perpetual target. The harassment can be anonymous and a single message posted online or sent to a mobile phone can spread to a wide audience. Hurtful or embarrassing messages or images can remain online indefinitely to damage the child's social life and friendships, and possibly their reputation.

Cyber Bullying Tips Tell a trusted adult about the bullying, and keep telling until the adult takes action. Don’t open or read messages by cyber bullies. Tell your school if it is school related. Schools have a bullying solution in place. Don’t erase the messages—they may be needed to take action. Protect yourself—never agree to meet with the person or with anyone you meet online. If bullied through chat or instant messaging, the “bully” can often be blocked. If you are threatened with harm, inform the local police.

Monday, March 29, 20109 teens charged in cyberbullying suicideA 15-year-old girl named Phoebe Prince killed herself on Jan. 14 after what authorities in Northampton, Mass., describe as months of bullying, stalking and harassment. Now, prosecutors say that nine teens have been indicted in connection with the suicide. No charges for the school officials, though they were aware that Prince was being harassed, the AP says. If you feel the charges are overkill, then you need to read this piece from the Boston Globe about the case, written a few days after Prince died:Ten days ago, Phoebe was walking home from school when one of the Mean Girls drove by in a car. An insult and an energy drink can came flying out the car window in Phoebe’s direction.Phoebe kept walking, past the abuse, past the can, past the white picket fence, into her house. Then she walked into a closet and hanged herself. Her 12-year-old sister found her.You would think this would give the bullies who hounded Phoebe some pause. Instead, they went on Facebook and mocked her in death.Prince was a native of Ireland who'd recently moved to the area. She apparently got on someone's bad side when she dated a senior football player.
