Deaths Attributed to Cyber Bullying

Online hackers are taking action towards justice for Deaths Attributed to Cyber Bullying.

Are these hackers to be commended, or reviled?

The excerpt from the report that follows is part of the heartrending story of a British Columbia teen suicide.

It is my understanding that Amanda Todd took her own life on October 10, 2012 following more than a year of torment online that led her to anxiety, depression, drug and alcohol abuse, ultimately to her death.

Amanda Todd was 15 years old.

The hackers of an activist group calling themselves ‘Anonymous’ named an individual online that this group is allegedly stating as Amanda Todd’s tormentor.

This news item was posted at the CBC News online site on October 15, 2012 6:01 PM PT, and updated on October 16, 2012 11:44 AM PT. This post includes a video of the news report.

Deaths Attributed to Cyber Bullying

“Amanda Todd’s alleged tormentor named by hacker group”

“The tragic story of B.C. teen suicide victim Amanda Todd has taken another bizarre twist as the internet hacking and activist group Anonymous has named a man the group says was the girl’s primary tormentor.”

“Todd, 15, …” “… died last Wednesday, a month after posting a haunting video on YouTube that cited the sexualized attack that set her down a path of anxiety, depression and drug and alcohol abuse.”

“During her nine-minute video, the teen explains in handwritten notes that she was in Grade 7 when she was lured by an unidentified male to …”

7th grade!

“She says that a year later, she received a message from a man on Facebook threatening that if she didn’t give him a show, he would send the webcam picture to her friends and family. She says police later told her the man followed through with his threat.”

“Anonymous published the name and address of a Vancouver-area man that the group claims was bullying and preying on Todd via the internet.”

Here is the video of the news report. (We apologize for the commercial that precedes the video.)

You can see the full report and video online at CBC News, Vancouver, British Columbia.

“A spokesman told CBC News Monday that police are aware of the social media speculation about Todd’s alleged tormentor, but would not comment further.”

“A national child anti-exploitation group, cybertip.ca, says it received a tip almost a year ago about Todd.”

“A concerned citizen contacted the organization last November to report that images of Todd were being circulated online, said spokeswoman Signy Arnason.”

“”We did receive one report, and that was passed along to law enforcement as well as child welfare,” Arnason said Monday. “It was not a report from her, but it was a report from a concerned citizen.””

“Seedy underworld”

“The kind of sexual exploitation described by Todd is part of a seedy cyber-underworld that targets young girls and it is not bullying, but a vicious crime that should be pursued even after her death, say child advocates.”

“”Threats are a very common tactic utilized by individuals in their attempts to extort more information off of the kids,” said Arnason …”

Deaths Attributed to Cyber Bullying has got to stop. All cyber bullying has to stop. This story is horrific; it is so unimaginable, but it is the reality for many teens being bullied in person and especially online.

Each of us individually and collectively must be a part of those activities that will stop cyber bullying.

Violence in Dating Relationships

This is a regional story and statistics about How to Parent Teenagers Violence in Dating Relationships. Chris Rowley writes in the Shawangunk Journal from Ellenville, New York. This may be a large regional, and I can’t say how close this community is to New York City. Studies have shown that the closer to large metropolitan areas a teen lives or socializes the higher the statistics for date violence.

How to Parent Teenagers Violence in Dating Relationships

 “Teen Date Violence…”

“The statistics are alarming. One in ten teenagers has been the victim of violent abuse.”

“”When we factor in verbal and emotional abuse,” says Pam O’Dea of Safe Homes of Orange County, an organization dedicated to the prevention of domestic abuse and violence, “that figure rises to one in three.””

“Start with two of today’s absolute teen requirements — independence from parents and a cell phone. Add in a young person’s relative inexperience with dating and intimate relationships. Spice this up with some “romantic” ideas about love and dating and …”

“Then on the other side of the gender coin, look at the pressures on young men. The youth culture exhorts them to be macho and protect their status with physical aggression. Combine this with the supposed “right” of males to control female partners and to do so with any means necessary.”

‘The messages backing up these ideas come from movies and hip-hop music, from television and pop songs.”

“Extreme jealousy, coupled with threats of both physical and non-physical abuse …”

How would you feel if you were one ofthe parents of this teen? I suspect that would depend you perspective on crime. If you do not care much for societal order, then maybe you will be proud. If you believe in retribution, perhaps you agree with this teen’s actions, or want to seek it yourself. However, if you are an average caring parent, you will be deeply concerned and near panic at your son’s teenage behavior.

Any number of causes can exist for violent behavior. Gangs come to mind for urban areas. The suburbs are not exempt from increased gang activity. Mental health issues exist, including anti-social disorder. Though crime is an anti-social behavior, crime can be part of a larger problem of cultural norms. Many teens are saddled with the label of anti-social, but often mental health disorders cannot be formally diagnosed until the teen is older.

Violence can be part and parcel of a history of severe abuse suffered at the hands of family or other close relatives.

Hollywood life, cars, and movies are a few. PMC has corporate offices located in Los Angeles, New York, and Navi Mumbai India.

There is an excerpt below for your review, and a link to the transcript for the original interview.

“’Kids Are Going to Come See This Film’: A Chat With Bully Director Lee Hirsch”

“How do you come to the rescue of the millions of children who need someone — anyone — to do what they can’t: get their bullies off their backs? Director Lee Hirsch has sounded a call to action with his new documentary Bully, which exposes bullying from the front lines.”

“’We were just looking to tell stories that allowed you to walk in the shoes of the kids and families who were dealing with this.’”

“’Now that the Weinstein Company is releasing the film unrated, how do you imagine kids seeing the movie?’”

“’Do you have any plans to do follow-ups with the kids from your film?’”

“’I don’t have time to do a follow-up film of any kind, but I am in touch with all of the families on a regular basis.’”

“’They mean the world to me, and it’s been awesome to get to spend a year with them.’”

I’m at odds with my own opinions about this documentary. I’m not quite sure that I support it to be distributed in schools. Silence is not the answer, but at what age do you cut off the viewing of this film? Celebrities have even joined the movement to eliminate bullying.

Eliminate Bullying Forever

Recently in the Huff Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com) Parents section, Richard Weissbourd and Stephanie M. Jones reported on Lady Gaga’s interest and efforts to Eliminate Bullying Forever.

Eliminate Bullying ForeverThere has always been bullying. It was tolerated in the distant past, I suspect, due to parents focus not understanding how to deal with children, or to teach better social skills. In those years past, some kids outgrew bullying others did not. This is evident in today’s tolerance of bullying. Those is power tend to bully those not in power; this includes children and adults. Awareness is growing. Lady Gaga, The Huffington Post, and these authors are spreading the word.

Read the excerpt below and then go to the original post to read it at length.

Eliminate Bullying Forever

“As a good deal of research now indicates, we live in an era when many parents are intensely focused on their children’s self-esteem, happiness and achievements, not on how well they care for others. And in all sorts of subtle ways we can prioritize …”

Not only is there is problem of Eliminating Bullying, there is the aftermath of the intense angry and frustrated feeling of the children that are bullied. Perhaps Dealing with Angry Children is part of the solution; the empowerment of our children and helping children to problem-solve.

I must say that I do not know much about the prevention of bullying. I do understand that bullying left unchecked will grow mean spirited adults and release them into a world already saturated with power hungry sadistic people. Twisted.

Today is a good day as any to discover more about our shared responsibility to reject separatism and view ‘the children’ as part of our larger village. All children everywhere deserve to grow and develop in an oppression free environment.

Reasons for Aggression in Children Research

Reasons for Aggression in Children Research

Reasons for Aggression in Children Research fromone source has been correlated to physical discipline of children. ‘Corporal punishment’ as used to discipline children is physical discipline. As evidenced by the news report indicated below, this is not the answer.

The CTV News Staff (Canada) have put together an informative article related to the causes for aggression in children.

If you are interested in finding out about the source, then Read the excerpt below. You may want to go to the full article and get all the information. There is also a reference and Link to the original research.

Physical Discipline,
Corporal Punishment in the family leads to Aggression in Children

Reasons for Aggression in Children Research

This article presents a compelling case for Aggression in Children being directly related to physical punishment in the family. It is a fine job of bringing the original research to life.

I looked for the Canadian Medical Association Journal original study article that addressed the source of Aggression in Children upon which this news clipping had been based.

I found the journal. I was not permitted access to the abstract of the study. It required a sign-in and it appeared that perhaps a fee is involved. I generally make it a habit to read the original study. This time I did not follow through. The CTV News article online presenting the Canadian study has a great deal of information for you. I have included some specifics of the Canadian study below, should you desire to follow through with obtaining a copy of the study for yourself.

“Physical punishment of children: lessons from 20 years of research”

Here is another Link to the CTV News webpage for… “The Canadian Medical Association Journal published results from a study that showed physical punishment with children could lead to serious problems later in life.”

This study leaves Parents with a lot to think about concerning  the discipline of children and physical punishment in the home.
