Cyber Bullying

Cyber bullying poses a great threat to many adolescents and teenagers and is one of parents’ biggest fears for their children’s mental stability. Cyber bullying is differentiated from cyber harassment in that cyber bullying occurs when a child under the age of 18 bullies or harasses another child, and cyber harassment occurs when an adult chooses to harass anyone of any age. Both are equally wrong, but in my opinion, cyber bullying poses a greater danger. Children and teenagers are far less evolved in their mental/emotional capacity and extremely more impressionable in most cases. This is why parents should monitor their child’s internet activity and preferably limit their use.
