Posted Oct 23 2012 12:00am
In honor of National Bullying Prevention Month
(October), we are highlighting some recent news and studies
available in our database that are related to children/adolescents, the media, and bullying/cyberbullying.
A mid-September article in the Examiner reported that parents of special needs children are seeking to have videotaping present in special education classrooms to discourage bullying and mistreatment of children. They also linked to articles about the bullying of special needs kids while in school, either by teachers or other students.
To familiarize yourself with bullying and cyberbullying, take a look at this article , which asks whether cyberbullying is "overrated," this article on the evolution from bullying to cyberbullying, and this article that asks what makes a bully, all available in our database.
It's not just adults who are concerned about cyberbullying and its effects on kids. Take a look at this fifth grader who wrote a song about bullying and performed it.
