BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Cyberbullying has become a big problem for kids and their parents.
Western Washington University psychology professor David Sattler says there are emotional, psychological, behavioral, and even legal consequences for the bullies and victims.
Sattler is giving a talk tonight called “Cyberbullying: What Parents and Teachers Should Know.”
It’s at 7:00 p.m. at the Bellingham City Council Chambers.
People can watch on local cable channel 10 or at the City of Bellingham’s website.
Sattler will talk about keeping children safe from humiliation, taunts, threats, and rumors on the internet.
He also plans to discuss the messages children receive from video games and reality TV that make cyberbullying appear acceptable.
