Cyberbullying Stories

"Someone sent me numerous emails with like two words in the email like 'your gay' 'your dumb' and that kind of stuff. When I am bullied (which is infrequently) I am called homosexual or gay so I'm used to it but it still hurts." - 14 year-old boy from Canada

Testimonials

"We had a wonderful day, extremely informative; each presentation was tailored for the audience. The Lower School Presentation was very engaging; there was great student participation. Students connected with the presenter and with his use of a variety of user-friendly headings and subheadings prior to talking about the topic. The parents walked away from their session with valuable information; we could easily have had an additional hour or two for dialogue and the exchange of thoughts. The Middle School was also full of energy. The students were enthusiastic and participated in various questions; they also left with an increased knowledge base. The Upper School was great; the majority of the students were captivated by Dr. Hinduja’s knowledge, information and wit. The flash polling was exceptional; it was a very interactive touch for the students with insightful questions and answers. The Faculty & Staff Session was also very productive; he covered data, statistics, various categories of bullying, relational aggression, choices, decision-making, and connections to cyberspace as well as providing websites with a wealth of information for parents and faculty. The entire day was an outstanding presentation, filled with high energy and a wealth of information!"

Theo Stephenson, Director of Counseling - St. Andrew's School
