Have you been hearing more about cyberbullying these days? I have. Frankly, the topic concerns me.

Here's why: Even if our kids aren't the victims -- or the bullies -- chances are they'll witness cyberbullying during the school year. And with classes back in full swing, now is the ideal time to talk to them about it.

Common Sense Media makes it easy with concrete advice about how to start the cyberbullying conversation with kids of different ages. Visit http://www.commonsensemedia.org/cyberbullying.

I've made a promise to talk to my kids about cyberbullying. Will you join me?

Watch the live streaming discussion today.

together we can all make a difference


  1. I really dread when my daughter gets old enough to go to school and get on the computer for this reason. I don't know what I would do if someone or some child bullied her. I'd probably be put in jail.

  2. As the mom of a 12 year old this is always timely. I don't think you can ever really be too prepared for this subject, it's such a different world from the one I grew up! Thanks for a great piece! So nice to find you on voiceBoks! I'm now happily following you!

  3. My son is still too young to deal with cyber bullying, but we do talk about regular (old-fashioned?) bullying just about every day. Of course, with how advanced kids are these days with technology, we'll have to talk about cyber bullying fairly soon I'm sure.

  4. My ten year old is the perfect age for this. THanks http://athriftydiva.com/
