Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Electronic technology includes devices and equipment such as cell phones, computers, and tablets as well as communication tools including social media sites, text messages, chat, and websites.
On season 2 episode 2 the crew researched and discussed whether or not parents were prepared for the dangers of kids using social media. During that research we found various stories about kids using social media and how that lead to cyberbullying and eventually suicide. Our original intent was to only discuss the dangers of kids using social media but as parents we felt the responsibility of increasing awareness about these issues. That meant doing research on topics that made us uncomfortable like cyberbullying and social media suicides. During this episode we will discuss our thoughts and views on cyber bullying and you will hear 3 stories of cyber bullying incidents that unfortunately lead to suicide.
