This indispensable book shows us the reality of young peoples' digital lives and presents a wide range of specific, practical, and research-based interventions to build online safety, reduce harm, and help youth develop positive digital citizenship. Highly recommended!

Accurate information is empowerment. With this book, Kowalski, Limber and Agatston empower all of us to cut through the hype around cyberbullying and address it intelligently and with the sensitivity it requires.

This book provides an eloquent mix of research theories and findings, together with actual experiences, in the important area of cyberbullying. It is especially strong in well-developed and comprehensive chapters about what parents and educators can do, to reduce both the likelihood of cyberbullying happening, and its negative consequences.

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.
