Cyberbullying Stories

"My 11 year old daughter is in fifth grade and was called into the principal's office because a sixth grade girl had received a threatening email and the mother of that child had performed an internet search on the email and it came back with the name of my daughter and showed that she also had a Facebook account. My daughter has neither of these. They questioned her and believed that she was not involved. We found the Facebook accountant sent a friend request to it. The person accepted it. I asked this person, "who are you and where do you go to school?" They replied," your daughter and the name of her school" My daughter was standing next to me at the time, there is no way it could have been her. I was able to read the posts on the wall of this account and it had very vulgar language and even said "I love to have sex" What worries me the most is that this person has repeatedly added strange men to the site and when you pull up some of their pages they have pornography on them. Most claim to be from all over the world, but at least three list local addresses. I am very frightened for my daughter because now these strangers know where she lives and the name of her school. We have filed a police report, but until an actual crime has been committed, they will not investigate. The school has questioned several girls but was unable to find who is responsible. We have also sent Facebook complaints and a copy of the police report, but they have not responded and have not taken the site down. We were made aware of this over two weeks ago and the site just continues to grow. We are desperate to protect our daughter, but do not know what to do." - Parent of 11 year-old girl from TN

Testimonials

"Sameer Hinduja’s presentations were a resounding success at CCDS; they were worth every dollar we spent to bring him to our school. In an intense morning, Sameer gave three distinct and powerful presentations. While the subject was the same,Dr. Hinduja skillfully tailored his presentation for each session – parents, high school students, and middle schoolers – in a way that was engaging and informative. Students loved the real time polling and real life examples.Conversations carried on for days after Dr. Hinduja left campus. The Cyberbullying Research Center and Dr. Hinduja are terrific resources for anyone who works with adolescent students and their parents."

Stephanie Luebbers - Head of Upper School, Cincinnati Country Day School
