Notes Why talk about myths instead of facts? -- Bullying is usually about a big kid beating up a smaller kid -- Bullying causes suicide and homicide -- Bullying is a normal part of childhood -- Kids who are small and physically weak are targeted for bullying -- The most important thing is what they did to you -- Cyberbullying is just like bullying, only on the computer -- Bullying and cyberbullying are separate problems -- Most adults cannot help kids with computer or Internet issues, since kids typically know more than they do -- Bullying and cyberbullying stop after high school -- Cyberbullying is usually anonymous -- Cyberbullying is the most emotionally devastating form of bullying -- Bullies have emotional problems -- All children all equally vulnerable to bullying -- Bullies are raised in dysfunctional families by parents who are bullies themselves -- Revenge is an effective way to handle bullies -- bullies don't understand how much they're hurting the target -- Schools don't do anything about bullying -- Schools can't take any action in cyberbullying cases -- Schools would absolutely stop bullying if they wanted to -- When kids shake hands and make up, the bullying stops -- There's no point in forcing kids to be nicer to each other, because they'll just be mean again when the adults aren't there -- If only kids would report to adults, the problem would be solved -- The best way to stop bullying is for bystanders to confront bullies and stop bullying episodes -- The best way to deal with cyber bullying is to keep kids off their phones and computers -- Just ignore them, and they'll leave you alone. That's the best strategy for dealing with bullies.
"Maybe your kids have been bullied, or maybe you worry that they will be. Bullying today still happens in traditional ways; but it can also happen in new and confounding ways. The troubles spattered across the media today aren't only new; they're newly confounding. One of the most difficult things about being a parent today isn't social cruelty per se, but the yawning gap in knowledge (particularly around digital issues) and a display of unmistakable human cruelty that can be disquieting. Decreasing or increasing, the fact is that bullying and cyberbullying remain among the most commonly-cited concerns expressed by parents and educators. New and baffling problems, articles, opinions, and advice abound. Yet even this large (indeed, sometimes overwhelming) flood of information doesn't really provide many answers about what to believe (is cyberbullying really rampant?), how to tell when something is truly a problem (versus just "growing pains"), or what parents are supposed to actually do (or not do, as the case may be)"--
