Stop Cyberbullying: Parents Must Step Up

Cyberbullying is the topic of a feature story in today's New York Times.

Perhaps the most intelligent comment comes from a district attorney's spokesman at the very end of the article, saying that "monitoring is up to the parents."

Supervision by parents and teachers -- and the willingness to restrict or prohibit altogether certain Internet activities for children -- will go far to stop cyberbullying. 

A raft of new laws -- such as A.3488 recently passed in New Jersey -- will do nothing to stop the real problem or help real victims, but these new laws will help the true bullies intimidate others.  The likely result will be an increased need for parents to get lawyers involved to protect their, and their children's, rights.
