  1. Read these two different sources on Cyberbullying. Which one do you think gives better information? Why? "Cyberbullying" is when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies or mobile phones. It has to have a minor on both sides, or at least have been instigated by a minor against another minor. Once adults become involved, it is plain and simple cyber-harassment or cyberstalking. Adult cyber-harassment or cyberstalking is NEVER called cyberbullying.It isn't when adult are trying to lure children into offline meetings, that is called sexual exploitation or luring by a sexual predator. But sometimes when a minor starts a cyberbullying campaign it involves sexual predators who are intrigued by the sexual harassment or even ads posted by the cyberbullying offering up the victim for sex. Gladstone High School Principal Brady Downey said both traditional bullying and cyberbullying involve repetitive mean or negative actions by someone against another person. However, with cyberbullying, this repetitiveness does not necessarily come from one person. For instance, a degrading email or an embarrassing photo of someone could be passed from one person to the next until it's forwarded to many people. The best way to address the issue is through prevention, according to Downey. "Prevention for us is the education piece," he said. "We've got to let them know that bullying is bullying. Whether or not you're sitting at your computer at midnight in your bedroom, it's bullying.”
