“It is difficult enough to support one’s child through a siege of schoolyard bullying. But the lawlessness of the Internet, its potential for casual, breathtaking cruelty, and its capacity to cloak a bully’s identity all present slippery new challenges to this transitional generation of analog parents.”
That’s the gist of an article on cyberbullying from the December 4, 2010 New York Times. You can read the full story by clicking here.
One of the person’s featured in the article is Parry Aftab, a lawyer and expert on cyberbullying. She will be at Dean College in Franklin on Thursday, December 9, 2010 to present a program on cyberbullying. Details about the program can be found in the flyer below or by clicking here.
If you are interesting in learning more about cyberbullying and ways to prevent it from harming your child, attend the program on Thursday night.
