In recent years, there has been a  lot of attention given to the topic of cyberbullying. This is especially so concerning children and adolescents. Every parent should be aware of this new way of bullying.

You might be interested in reading this definition of a cyberbully obtained from the website of PC Magazine. You can see from reading it that cyberbullying is not confined to children. I have read many cybercomments that fit that definition on various blogs, bulletin boards,  and forums. In fact, on a few occasions, not only from those sources but also from a couple e-mails, I myself have been the object of such bullying.

Chris Webster, an IT consultant based in Sydney, Australia, created a website on cyberbully back in 2004 and has been maintaining and updating ever since. I would like to suggest that you visit that website,, where you can go on an interactive journey through a detective’s office to learn about cyberbullying.
