Recent research suggests that 32 percent of teens know someone who has been harassed or bullied via text. Mobile harassment and bullying, which take place on a mobile phone through text messages, instant mes- sages, e-mails and social net- working sites, can have short- and long-term conse- quences, including psycho- logical harm, depression, anger, violence, low self- esteem and even suicide. While most kids view such behavior as a normal part of teen life, the damage caused can spread with viral speed and may permanently dam- age someone's reputation. Most every teen has at some point seen, forwarded, talked about or otherwise enabled the viral spreading of harassment-type messages. According to the recent "LG Text Ed Survey," conducted by TRU Research, 43 percent of all teens surveyed have sent, received or forwarded a text calling someone names or putting someone down. Additionally, 41 percent of teens surveyed have sent, received or forwarded a text that contained rumors about someone that were untrue. "In most cases, senders do not think about the harm or consequences of their actions when they send or tbrward these messages or photos," said Dr. ,Joel Haber, psychol- ogist, bully expert and LG Text Ed Advisory Council member. "The adolescent brain may not be registering the potential damaging impact it may have on its target." Fortunately, there are a few ways parents can help teens avoid this type of situation. When your children get a mobile phone, tell them about appropriate behavior and let them know when Teens and tweens may not realize that their actions in spreading messages may be causing harm. behavior crosses the line and becomes hurtful or mean to others. Teach teens to stop and think about what they are doing before they take action on a text message. * Stress the significance of speaking out agains chil- dren who hurt others through their mobile phone or online activity or, if this is not safe, providing help to the targeted child in a confidential way that makes him or her feel safe. Make sure your teens have someone to go to to report any direct threats-- you, their school, a hotline number or the police. Make sure your teens know that it is never OK to threaten anyone through their phone, onihe or offline, make fun of others, post embarrassing photos, mper- senate others or forward sala- cious messages about others: For More Information To learn more about this issue and how to talk to kids about mobile hara.ment, you can visit an easy--'a, hter- active resource, the LG Text Ed website at www.lgtex ted.com. The LG Text Ed Survey is a national snapshoi oftex- ting behaviors amon 13- to 17-year- olds and the parents of 13- to 17-year-olds. The study was.conducted online within the United States among 1,017 teen and 1,049 parents of teens. Caregivers: Giving Help To Those Who Need It (NAPS) In addition to being a son or daughter, a wife or husband, an employee or retiree, many could claim another title and don't even realize it. They also proudly call themselves a earegiver. You are a caregiver if you provide social or physical sup- port to an aging relative or friend or to a person with a disability. Caregivers may make weekly visits to a sick mother still living on her own. They may bring a frail father into their home for care. They may arrange for services for a relative who fives hundreds of miles away. What caregivers share in common is that they take time and energy from their lives to care for someone who needs their help. According to Lisa Peters- Beumer, assistant vice presi- dent. adult and senior services, Easter Seals, "Some of the ben- efits of being a caregiver are knowing you're giving back to a loved one and developing a stronger relationship with the person receiving care." A Primary Source Of Care Aecerding to the experts at Easter Seals, informal or unpaid caregivers are the pri- mary source of care for nearly three-quarters of the older adults with limitations who live in the community. These caregivers are usually family members. The most common type of an informal caregiving relationship is an adult child caring for an elderly parent. Other types of caregiving relationships include: Adults caring for other relatives, such as grandpar- ents, sliugs, aunts and und Spouses caring for What caregivers share in common is that they take time and energy from their lives to care for someone who needs their help. elderly husbands or wives; Middle-aged parents caring for adult children with severe disabilities; Adults caring for friends and neighbors; and Children caring for a parent or elderly grandpar- ent with a disability. hmgmstance  Long-distance or remote caregiving is becoming a real- ity for many. Long-distance caregivers are usually fam- ily members who provide support, care or care coordi- nation for an elder who lives at least an hour away. Although the distance may change, the responsibility and dedication remain the same. These caregivers still pro- vide help such as handling money, making appointments, offering reminders, checking in regularly, coordinating care and meals, and traveling, often to visit and provide respite care for local caregivers. Easter Seals provides ser- vices, support and choices for older adults and their care- givers so they can continue to live with dignity in their communities.
