Cyberbullying Stories

"How ironic that Miranda Cosgrove is being used as the celebrity face for anti-bullying, since I just told my 11 yr. old she can no longer watch "iCarly" because Carly and Sam (especially Sam) consistently bully "the less cool kids" on that show. Just watch one episode and you will see it. This is the problem. Everyone talks about stopping bullying, but they don't even recognize that THEY ARE THE BULLY!!!" - 11 year-old girl from USA

"In looking for a featured speaker for our annual conference, I immediately thought to contact the Cyberbullying Research Center as it has become my “go to” place for the latest research and practical information on cyberbullying. Sameer Hinduja’s presentation to our diverse audience of educators, law enforcement agents, and social service providers was informative, engaging, and extremely well-received. Participants across the board rated the presentation as Excellent” (with some people putting several stars next to their ratings), praising Sameer as being knowledgeable, passionate, genuine, intelligent, and practical. We loved the balance of research, analysis of relevant legal cases, text polling, videos, and practical solutions focusing on creating a positive school climate. The only downside is that he is going to be a hard act to follow in our future events!"
