The schools do make an effort to educating students on cyber bullying.
Parents need to discuss their expectations of their children's online activities before granting them the opportunity to abuse the web or letting the web abuse them Why are Kids Online? Typical methods of online predators:

Find kids through social networking, blogs, chat rooms, instant messaging, often using information in their targets’
personal profiles.

May impersonate as a child to convince minors to meet with them.

Seduce their targets by grooming them through attention, flattery, affection, kindness, and even gifts. These types of manipulation will cause kids to lose their sense of awareness, and help the predators get from bad intentions to sexual exploitation.

Begins conversations about the latest music, hobbies, fashion, etc. that are likely to interest kids.

Looks for children that are emotionally vulnerable due to problems at school or home. Example, through status updates.
~Creates a manipulative friendship by listening and
sympathizing with kids about their problems, taking
the kids side verse the parent or teacher.

~After establishing friendship and trust a predator will
gradually introduce sexual content into conversations
or show sexually explicit material that may even
involve children engaging in sexual activity – in order
to convince kids that this type of behavior is acceptable.

~If the child tries to cut off communication, predators
scare the child into continuing the relationship by
convincing them that they will tell their parents what
they have been doing online and that they have viewed
pornographic pictures, etc. Teach kids to be S.M.A.R.T online
