More High Tech Bullying
from the no-surprise-there dept
Last year we had a couple of articles about how kids these days were using text messages to bully other kids. It appears that phenomenon has moved from the UK over to Australia where plenty of kids report receiving rude text messages. However, one other way of being bullied is to be "Nigelled", where kids leave someone out of a text chat conference. The study found that parents and teachers, not being as technically savvy, weren't exactly sure what to do to stop cyber-bullying. However, on the whole, it doesn't sound all that different from regular, everyday schoolyard bullying, and I doubt that's ever going to stop.
