For children, being intimidated at school by a bully can lead to a lot of emotional problems. A child may avoid school, claiming to be sick. A child may actually develop a psychosomatic sickness, where the body creates the symptoms of an illness in response to the mind saying that the body is in fact sick. When children exhibit signs of anxiety and distress adults need to pay attention, it could be warning signs of bullying. Adults should get involved and meet with parents of the child who is guilty of bullying and and make sure the behavior is stopped. Easy to do when you can see the attacker, but in today's technological world, bullying has often taken the form of cruel teasing and mean insults in the Internet, spread anonymously through social media. How do we combat "cyber bullying"? What are the emotional effects of such behavior on children? Today members of the Garfield Youth Organization discuss their efforts to raise awareness about Cyber Bullying
