Interview QuestionsAs a guidance counselor, how many cases of cyber bullying have you witness?What are some advice you would give to a victim that is experiencing cyber bully?Why do you think cyber bullying starts?Are there any programs in this school that a victim can join to talk about their issues?


Interview AnswersThroughout my whole career, I've witnessed about 5 cases.In our school, if its a minor problem, you should tell your parents and deans. But if it gets out of hand and affecting the child, they should call the police.It's a way for children to confront other children through the Internet. It's easier online than in person.In school, there's a program a child can join called "Solitaire Anti-Bullying".

AFTER SCHOOL, 13-YEAR-OLD ALICIA DUMPS HER BACKPACK and heads to the computer to connect with her friends on MSN. One of them breaks the news that she's been sent a link to a website entitled "Top 10 People Not to Take to Prom," on which Alicia's school photo is featured, alongside comments like "What a fat ugly sl*t." Turns out the rest of Alicia's friends - and who knows how many other schoolmates - were sent the same link. Crying and fighting the urge to throw up, Alicia tells her mother. Though Mom offers a comforting hug, her advice is less helpful: "Just don't look at it, hon." The next day, when Alicia's mother drives her to school, she can't understand why the normally easygoing teen refuses to get out of the car.
