Children are using the anonymity of the Internet to harass other children, spread cruel rumors and s metimes even threaten physi- cal harm.

The same technology that has brought so many benefits is also bringing pain to far too many children, while allowing others to brutalize their peers without the chance of ge g caught. New pain, 01d problem. * : There is nothing new about bullying, but the Internet has made it a far easier thing to accomplish.

You may be surprised to learn that your child already has been a target of cyber-bullying. If so, the most im- portant thing is to find out what kind of bullying is tak- ing place.
