ABSTRACT
The article focuses on cyberbullying as a growing problem for children. A survey of 1,500 students in the U.S. reveals that one in every four children had been bullied online more than once. It is said that cyberbullies can go after children anytime by sending hurtful electronic mail (e-mail) messages. Parry Aftab, the founder of a Web site that helps people who have been mistreated online, suggests that children should be aware of their own behavior online.
