Why did the girls start to harass and threaten Stacey online in the first place?
When do you think the girls’ behavior “crossed the line”?
Stacey says, “People talk really big, when there’s, like, miles between you.” What do you think she means by this statement?
In what ways might the online context make the situation worse than if the bully had harassed Stacey offline?
Stacey’s mom says that Stacey should call the school and report the incidents. Stacey responds that it would “just make it worse.” Do you think this is true? Why or why not?
Eric gets a lot of pressure from his parents to do well in school. Other kids in school tease himbecause he works so hard but still gets poor test scores. He gets instant messages and text messagesduring the day and at night about his poor grades. The word “loser” is in most of them, and thelanguage becomes stronger every day. Today he received a text from a number he did not recognize, with a photo of his body with a turkey’s head. A thought bubble above the picture reads: “Why am I so STUPID? What a *!*#&** I am.” Eric thinks Alexis, the most popular girl in the eighth grade, is behind the message.
What does it feel like when a teasing situation “crosses the line” from harmless to harmful?
What are some different forms of cyberbullying?
What advice would you give to someone who feels cyberbullied?
Discussion in Groups:
1. What forms of cyberbullying did the students use on Eric? What is your evidence?
2. How do you think Eric feels? What elements of this situation make him feel this way?
3. Do you think Eric should tell his parents about the cyberbullying?
4. What qualities do you think a “trusted adult” should have? Who are these people in your life? In
what ways can a trusted adult actually be effective?
5. If Alexis was the bully, what could school personnel, such as the principal, do or say to Alexis to
make her realize that her behavior is wrong?
6. Have you ever been part of, or heard of, a situation similar to this? If so, share the story with the
group without using names or details.
