From the Publisher

    This book provides a comprehensive overview of cyberbullying that includes research, prevention strategies for parents and educators, intervention strategies, and legal issues. It is an updated version of the author's previous work and it should be required reading for parents, educators, and youth serving organization personnel. It also provides a thorough foundation in traditional bullying and helps us understand the similarities and differences between online and offline bullying.

    A reviewer

    I highly recommend this book for parents and educators. Most parents know much less about communicating online than their children. This book educates us about the digital world and cyber bullying including real life examples and students perspectives. Learn how to talk to teens about online activity, as well as how to set guidelines and ground rules. This book will help parents recognize warning signs, and will give resources to use if their child encounters cyber bullying.

    A must read for Educators and Parents!

    The authors of this book address one of the more problematic areas affecting young people today: cyber-bullying and bullying. With the impact of technology and students using computers, cell phones, websites, and cameras, students have found additional ways to taunt and intimidate others. This resource describes the latest statistics and research along with what schools and parents can do to reduce cyber-bullying. If you have interest in choosing a practical book that will increase your learning curve on cyber-bullying, I highly recommend your checking it out. Also, share the book with other educators and parents.
