Cell Phone Bullying is on the Rise Among Teens

A new study conducted by Internet Solutions for Kids, a nonprofit research organization in San Clemente, has revealed that kids are increasingly turning to their cell phones to engage in bullying behaviors and inappropriate sexual dialogue with their peers.

Lead study author Michele Ybarra, who is Director of Internet Solutions for Kids, noted that “our data don’t support that things are getting worse online in frequency or intensity,” but that use of cellphones to sexually harass and bully peers is on the rise, prompting concern among parents who often rely on internet security software to protect their children from online predators (software which is unavailable for cell phones).

People who are bullied and or those who bully others, as well as those who are bystanders, are at a significant high risk of suffering from frequent physical and emotional symptoms, including depression, irritability, sleeping difficulties, headaches, stomachaches, anxiety and above all, suicidal attempts.
