Cyberbullying is Against the Law

Bully Free
State of Montana

A few days ago I asked the question, what is Cyberbullying?

According to the Montana Department of Justice Cyber Bullying is “willful and repeated harm inflicted through the use of computers, cell phones and other electronic devices.”

With school back in session it was alarming to me when I started to research this topic and found that the State of Montana does not have cyber bullying legislation specifically directed for the school environment, but does have general anti-bullying statutes.
Students use technology to bully through personal web pages; social networking sites such as MySpace, FaceBook or Flickr; YouTube; cell phone, text, picture and video messages; email and IM’ing; and blogs and forums.

What you may think is funny or a simple prank may not be funny to the victim. The victim may respond very differently than you expect.

Under Montana and federal laws, a cyberbully might be charged with a Criminal Offense: depending on the specific circumstances of a case.

As Parents it is our responsibility to teach our children to think first and post later.

What do you think, are we as parents blind to the fact our kids are Cyberbullying?
