The federal government defines cyberbullying as “bullying that takes place using electronic technology, such as cell phones, computers, and tablets as well as communication tools including social media sites, text messages, chat, and websites.” Cyberbullying has become a significant problem for many young people, so much so that several have taken their own lives to escape the pressure they experience. As with many advances in technology, our legal system has not kept pace. Law enforcement uses the tools at their disposal to track, arrest and prosecute offenders, but the problem persists. Many parents wonder what they can do to prevent cyberbullying from happening to their children. This talk will discuss current efforts to combat cyberbullying, including using lessons learned from defeating bullying in the real world.
This talk is the first in a series of events in 2022 sponsored by the Space Coast Progressive Alliance in support of the important theme of “The Road to Civility.”
