Cyberbullying Stories

"I went to check my e-mail and there was a message from some people in my old school sent these threatening e-mails some saying "we'll hunt you down at your NEW school and you'll never know what hit you" i felt very scared and at the same time i wondered how they knew my e-mail address. So i told a teacher at that school but then I remembered that at that school they do nothing about this stuff and they are still coming those e-mails." - 13 year-old girl from Canada

"Wow! What a terrific presentation. I cannot begin to tell you how impressed everyone was with your presentation. If I heard it once, I heard it a hundred times..."Dr. Patchin was excellent." We have only five copies of your book left (out of one hundred)....that speaks for itself. We are donating them to the UWSP education dept. for aspiring teachers. Here's a story you will love. On Saturday evening of our convention, there was an athletic banquet taking place in the adjoining rooms. One of the parents saw your book on our registration table and came over to ask about it and said her daughter is a victim. She bought a book and got all the info on you and the reasearch you've done. Now, that's what I call "making a difference." Again, Dr. Patchin....thank you from all of us. You were great. It was such a pleasure to meet you and work with you on this project. "
