Honeysuckle Middle scholars were told to stand up to bullying on Tuesday. It is apart of presentation for kids on cyber-bullying.
Ninety percent of kids are teased or harassed through the use of cell phones and the internet.
Cyber bullying has become the primary method in which kids tease, harass and take out their aggression.
Experts say kids need to delete harmful messages and let an adult know if they are being bullied. Parents are encouraged to take an active role in their children’s electronic communications.
Shanterra McBride, a spokesperson from Unicel, says, “Checking to see how their young people are using their technology, meaning put the computer in a public place, walk by the computer often, check the message and the content of the computer as well as with text messages, there's no reason why a parent shouldn't feel comfortable in checking their kid’s phones. “
Starting Wednesday, News 4's Erica Proffer will begin her series called "Bullying Beyond the Classroom."
