Cyberbullying does not just happen between kids. My friend, a tutor, has been attacked non stop on the internet since Jan 2013 by Wendy Yuen, senior banking employee at a big bank, Hang Seng Bank, Hong Kong, mother of her pupil. Wendy Yuen actually ran away without paying the last lesson but when my friend demanded payment, Wendy Yuen launched her attacks to silence my friend. Shocking how a big bank employs a woman with a history of bad debts and cyber bullying. My friend is unable to find work on the internet and is in financial difficult and depressed now. This is another real story that shows cyber bullying exists and can drive people to poverty, depression or suicide.

Your friend should save every online communique or e-mail the stalker/harasser sends her and take them to the Human Resources Department at the bank! If I were her, I wouldn't stop til I got the attention of the CEO! Nobody needs to put up with that, whether it's a child or an adult.

Take responsibility for your own actions! If you kill yourself then you did it not anyone else. What do you think cyber is some big deal that made you a shining star for all the world to see? For all the world to care about? No that is not life. Stop blaming other people when someone is so foolish as to take their own life. This girls parents should be arrested for not letting their daughter live in a non-fantasy world. She could have taken a stick and wopped her bully in the mouth with it or done anything other than what she did. She is at fault for taking her life not me not you not anyone else!
Anything other than that truth is a lie. Get Real!

At that age -- 12?-- kids are NOT responsible, nor do they have the mental/emotional maturity to work through problems like adults would. You must be a child, to say something as ridiculous as what you posted. Doesn't sound to me like you have much mental/emotional maturity, either. Just sayin .....

I was looking at a monitor screen and saw something that "absolutely terrorized" me. I became so frightened I drank as much milk as I could to over dose. I didn't realize that what was on my monitor wasn't real. My parents are to blame because they didn't tell me that. Maybe my parents should have talked to me a little more and I would have been able to tell fantasy from reality. You will all see how terrorized I am. My mother will buy milk again. Oh yes she will than you will all see. Only a schizophrenic family dynamic would show that a 12 year old did not identify enough with her parents to have the inner strength needed. Shame on the parents.
