When kids misuse online or social media technology to harass or bully others they can do long, lasting harm. Nothing destroys kids self esteem faster than humiliation. Sadly, hurtful information posted online is really hard to remove and millions of people can see it. As more and more states are creating more strict laws to help prevent and stop cyberbullying. Parents and teachers need to make kids realize the consequences of their actions online. Kids must understand that they have a choice in their online affairs. They must understand that they can say mean things or nice things.
