Cyberbullying and Suicide
American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)
78% of adolescents who committed suicide were bullied both at school and online.
Protect Yourself On The Internet
As a class, let's create a pledge to stand up to cyberbullying. With your partner, use the following websites to list 3 to 5 ways you can help stop, prevent, or stand up to cyberbullying.
Turn in your "Pledge" on the podium when finished.
Ms. Noble will create a class pledge for each student to sign next class.
Stand Up for Others
Talk to a parent, teacher, or another adult you trust. Adults need to know when bad things happen so they can help.
Be kind to the kid being bullied. Show them that you care by trying to include them. Sit with them at lunch or on the bus, talk to them at school or invite them to do something. Just hanging out with them will help them know they aren't alone
Find out more about where and when the bullying happens at your school. Think about what could help. Then, share your ideas. There is a good chance that adults don't know all of what happens. Your friends can go with you to talk to a teacher, counselor, coach, or parent and can add what they think
Talk to the principal about getting involved at school. Schools sometimes give students a voice in programs to stop bullying. Be on a school safety committee. Create posters for your school about bullying. Be a role model for younger kids.
Write a blog, letter to the editor of your local newspaper, or tweet about bullying

September 14th, 2013
A 12 year old girl who suffered months of ruthless cyberbullying from other girls committed suicide this week. Rebecca Ann Sedwick of the town Lakeland in central Florida jumped from a platform at an abandoned cement plant near her home on Monday.
Her death is the latest in an apparently growing phenomenon of youths driven to taking their own lives after suffering cruel treatment online via text and photo messaging applications. More than a dozen girls have been identified as possibly involved in the bullying of Sedwick. The bullying apparently started with a dispute over a boy that Sedwick had dated for awhile.
According to her mother, Sedwick had received text messages
that said things like "You're ugly", Why are you still alive?" and "Go Kill yourself." Judd, the sheriff, said the girl was "absolutely terrorized on social media." At one point the mother had pulled her daughter out of school and transferred her to another, closed down the girl's Facebook page and took away her cellphone. Things seem to be getting better and Rebecca's spirits seemed to be lifting at her new school
