    @ Karoline, we've done a great job of teaching our kids about online predators but not about being safe from each other
    big difference

    Of course the administration underestimated the oil spill. We saw it for ourselves everyday on AC360.
    Lol @ the shot. Mr. Cooper braves all storms 😉

    seeing weather like that in a place that usually doesn't get weather like that is strange and scary. At least Anderson has good balance in strormy, windy weather! Looking good tonight by the way 😉

    @ Starr, Thanks for being still here, know how you feel been there at eleven years old and sixteen.

    I thank Anderson, Dr Phill and Ellen for putting so much focus on this issue !
    Times are so much crueler now for kids with the phones and cyberspace.

    Weathermen are some of the craziest people. I saw Anderson's spot in Jon Stewart's new book.

    Maybe one day decency and compassion will trump the "right to free speech" argument that some foolishly make when it comes to this stuff... Jeff Toobin really nailed it the other night when he explained (I think with regards to the Shirvell issue) that not everything falls under the "free speech" heading...sometimes it's slander, sometimes it's harassment.

    I think I heard someone say once that all our technology has brought all the creepy people we wanted to protect our kids from into our homes.

    Worried about bullies? They are right in your living room now or your child's bedroom.

    But we don't have a concerted effort to teach parents about the dangers of technology. Parents learn they must teach their child how to drive, or take them to a driving school. Why can't we require parents to go to Internet school or attend it with their kids?

    I think we are seeing an explosion because more are willing to talk about it now.

    The internet and cell phones have proven to be dangerous in the hands of young adults a age limit needs to apply for usage .

    No doubt AC360 series on Bullying helps many kids and their families as well.

    Dr. Phil had some great ideas. But lets also tell our children that bullies aren't safe people. Express to our kids that they don't want to be in their group or their friend. Maybe some good lessons on healthy boundaries and being proud of the gifts they bring to the world.

    Dr Phil Mcgraw have good point there, It have to stop cyberbully over internet or text in the country!!! I agree with him!

    @Kevin Epling, MI
    besides lack of empathy, I think it's an overall lack of respect!

    This all makes me wonder how much the "volume" of bullying has changed. I know it must be more intense because of social networking and electronic communication, but we know it's not new. And, in fact, in many ways life was much more challenging in different ways for GLBT people many, many years ago. I guess there's just a heightened awareness and more people terribly unhappy who need to vent their frustrations, so GLBT make a great target.

    Remember when parents used to be held responsible for their children's poor behavior? Parents used to be shamed into doing right and proper by their children so that their children would do right by them and thus, the society at large; but then it was the Holy Word of God that society as a whole used as a foundation on which to build good character and decency, but that is no more. And so we have what we have today because of the decay of old-fashioned religious values.

    When I talk to students I tell the principle to watch when I talk about sexting and cyberbullying, those who are being "controlled" will always look towards the ringleaders.

    Principles have thanked me for the insight.

    it should be mandatory that kids read hamelet in school...to be or not to be....who really knows if there is and escape in death...kids should learn not to give up....per chance to dream.....

    @Libby – thanks for the infromation on Joe Miller.

    I can't imagine how people in Alaska felt when Gov. Palin quit.

    I am delighted you are here and did not attempt suicide! It must have been so painful for you to be at that point in your life.

    All you parents out there go buy your kids what they want your the cause .

    I also think parents need to be taught it's OK to say no to chatrooms until the kids are older. It's OK to say no to much of the Internet.

    But that's another part of peer pressure parents have to cope with-"Everyone else is doing it mom, why can't I?"

    The schools could take it upon themselves to teach parents this. If they want to.

    I was just wondering what happened with the kids that were arrested in the Phoebe Prince case.

    I think it is our responsibility as parents to control our kids. If they think we will check their postings, they may choose not to write something that will hurt another child.

    October 6, 2010 at 10:48 pm |
  44. Sharon Hastings

    Yes, kids are impulsive. They don't make good decisions for themselves. They don't think of consequences. So parents have to step in and if that means taking away some of their privacy then that's what it takes. Too much is at stake.

    October 6, 2010 at 10:48 pm |
  45. Karoline, Los Angeles

    Another aspect of this sexting behavior that we haven't heard much discussion on: peer pressure. If 22% have done it then there have to be some who are saying to their friends that it's OK.

    So how do parents turn that around? Is it just as hard as turning around what a child wears, how they cut their hair, if they want a tattoo, or if they want to be allowed to go to chat rooms?

    That's another part of the story-the peer pressure to send the pictures. The belief it's OK.

    @Vic you are closde its not that we have to have them ignore the bull;ies but to have them SUPPORT those being bullied this breaksdown the power dynamic of the bully.

    My heart breaks with this story of Hope. She simply did something impulsively and tried to be "in" and look what happened.

    I attempted suicide too, but am so grateful i failed so that i could grow up and get beyond the pain and hurt of the bullys.

    However, now with cyber devices there is no place to hide.There is no peace. Dr. Phil is right, there is no "safe" place.

    At least when i got home from school i was safe and had a break from those nasty bullys at school.I do not believe i would have survived today's bullys
    I send prayers for Hope, her family and her friends and ALL of theother children who have died and those who are suffering everyday now.
