    This is a very important topic, in the coming 6 weeks our children are going to be going back to school and all these bully's are going to be poised to prey on our children. It is just too easy to get access to our children now days. Safety is my top priority, and I will do anything and everything in my power to protect my children. I have parental controls on our machines at home, and even on my work laptop in the event that I let my 7 year old play clubpenguin or look for things that interest him on the Internet. They are so smart. I tell you one thing, Google is pretty awesome, not sure how they do it, but keeping the pornography out of their searches. More and more I think we are becoming more careful and more concerned for the safety of our children. I love this site the most. Something new each day about the dangers of texting and driving. Up to the date stuff. They publish lots of my comments and seem to really care. - Concerned Father

    These children are just doing what they have been taught.

    Everyday we are told that majority rules and might makes right.

    These kids are just living by that credo.

    people are only using the internet to bully because they dont have enough courage to do it in person. the web is there escape or way of opening their mouth. Its wrong and these people need to grow up.

    I think people should treat each other the way they wanted to be treated. That's crazy that you have the time to get on the computer and just look up the person you don't like and send them a mean e-mail. Who ever does that have no life.

    I think it's wrong and mean. I'm glad I don't have a Myspace or a Facebook personally. I hope everyone who has one doesn't get bullied anymore because that is just horrible!! Poor people.

    Children are cruel to each other. Most adults don't get this and have given children more tools to do what they do best...

    i am truely horified to see stories of children that have committed suicide because of other children thinking it is ok to play around and "have fun on the computer". Adults needs to be more careful and secure about what their children do online, Make sure your children are not doing anything you would not allow or something against the law!!!
