Tech Bullies

from the they're-everywhere dept

A UK children’s charity has put out a warning today that schoolyard bullies are moving online. They want parents and teachers to be aware that bullying isn’t just happening in the schoolyard – and that it may be harder for kids to hide from the bullies. The bullies, they say, are moving on to bullying-by-mobile phone and bullying-by-text messaging. Of course, I don’t think there’s anything wrong in being reminded about such things – but I could easily see people over reacting.
