SORT BY Relevancy
We will be discussing cyberbullying in the context of if school systems have any recourse to combat cyberbullying that occurs off campus without infringing on the first amendment. Students first amendment rights while on school premises are curbed to a degree to foster the learning experience. Off campus students are essentially given the full protections of the 1st amendment. Can or should schools be able to punish students for activity on the internet that occurs off campus and does not violate other laws/ regulations (ie underage drinking fighting)? Would like to bring up some highly publicized cases of cyberbullying and address some of the laws being passed as well as some that have already been struck down as to broad on this topic.

Topic: Cyberbullying with Host Dee
Special episode for kids and adults alike!
Since the rise of the Internet, cyberbullying has become rampant in many online circles. Two things make it easy for bullies to harass others online: Anonymity and distance. It is not just a "kids problem" anymore...many adults are victims of cyberbullying, and like kids many adults don't know what to do. Adults tend to think that they should be "old enough" to take care of it, but when bullying turns into constant harassment or threats of physical violence, both age groups need to have the tools to deal with and stop the bullying.
We invite our listeners to call in and tell us about their own experiences....either as a victim or a previous bully. Let us know your thoughts on this matter.
Kids all over the United States are actually killing themselves from the anguish of bullying....or worse yet, committing acts of violence themselves in retribution. Let's discuss ways to stop the downward spiral that bullying causes.

RANDOM is a tense, gripping exploration of cyberbullying and teen suicide is perfect for fans of Before I Fall and Thirteen Reasons Why.
Late at night Tori receives a random phone call. It’s a wrong number. But the caller seems to want to talk, so she stays on the line. He asks for a single thing—one reason not to kill himself.
The request plunges her into confusion. Because if this random caller actually does what he plans, he’ll be the second person connected to Tori to take his own life. And the first just might land her in jail. After her Facebook page became Exhibit A in a tragic national news story about cyberbullying, Tori can’t help but suspect the caller is a fraud. But what if he’s not? Her words alone may hold the power of life or death.
With the clock ticking, Tori has little time to save a stranger—and maybe redeem herself—leading to a startling conclusion that changes everything…

About the Tour.
SISFI is hosting our Suicide Awareness and Prevention NY Tour on Sept. 17th - Oct 3rd across NYC, Long Island and Westchester to bring more awareness, services, programs and resources to address the increasing numbers of people facing serious life and emotional challenges, and human suffering with suicide ideations/thoughts, and supporting families who lost loved ones to suicide.
The theme of the tour is “Look into my heart and mind, tell me what you see”. It highlights the realities of not knowing what’s in a person’s mind or on their heart by what we see on the outside, and that we must engage in dialog and allow an open and comfortable atmosphere for people to open up and express themselves.
We have aligned 15 community workshops, 3 luncheons and 15 radio shows to bring people, mental health professionals, energy therapists, health professionals, survivors and healers together to address this very serious and important topic affecting many people in our communities. While the community workshops are local in the 3 cities, the radio shows will have guests from across the country who lost loved ones, and practitioners who specializes in the support, treatment, recovery and healing of mental health, life coaching, emotional wellness and human suffering.

Cyberbullying is the act of directing threatening or disparaging information at a target child using Information and Communications Technology. Cyberbullying is harmful, repeated and hostile behavior intended to taunt, embarrass, deprecate & defame a targeted child. Dissimilar to classic bullying, cyberbullying includes Cyberbullying by proxy, which is when a cyberbully encourages or persuades others to engage in deprecating and harassing a target child. www.iPredator.co. As author of the Information Age Forensics construct, iPredator, and internet safety website, www.iPredator.co, Dr. Nuccitelli discusses why some children are prone to cyberbullying and why some cyberbullies grow into adult iPredators.
Bullies have always been a nuisance to other people. Most people endure bullying in their school age years. The creation of the internet has been a great thing. The internet has brought a new form on bullying that is new and very destructive to the person being bullied. Cyberbullying has caused people public shame before the world. Some people are bullied so much that they commit suicide. We want to talk about this issue and bring info on laws that were inacted to protect your from online bullies.
