customers. Therefore cyber bullying has become one of the serious

harassing, or embarrassing another young person using the Internet or

other technologies, like cell phones.” Moreover, there are scary facts

making cyber bullying become normal thing, Girls are about twice as

likely as boys to be victims and perpetrators of cyber bullying, and

Bullying victims are 2 to 9 times more likely to consider committing

suicide. As stated by KidsHealth, “Sometimes cyber bullying can be easy

to spot— for example, if your child shows you a text message, tweet, or

response to a status update on Facebook that is harsh, mean, or cruel.

Other acts are less obvious, like impersonating a victim online or

posting personal information, photos, or videos designed to hurt or

embarrass another person. Some kids  report that a fake account,web

page, or online persona has been created with the sole intention to  harass

and bully.” Parent have to warn and teach their children because not

many school have facilities of the computer to teach student about

computer and internet. So beware of using internet and always pay

attention when you are using internet.
