how about teaching these kids that are "bullied" to get a backbone and quite wearing their feelings on their sleeves. Or better yet to stop being a freak and giving normal kids a reason to dislike them.

Something about your kid caused the cyberbullying so find out why the other kids don't like him and fix his/her problem.
Find out why the other kids don't like him? That still gives no one a right to bully anyone. What kind of thinking is that? It's never okay. God says, Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. He didn't say only do that when you like someone.

I'm guessing that you don't like people that are different from you. You sound like one of those Mean Girls people talk about all the time.

No im not mean. I just dont understand why people who dress and do things that draw negative attention to themselves whine about being bullied. If you dont want to get teased then dont give other people a reason to tease you.

You are a mom and you have this attitude? I feel sorry for your children. They must be afraid to be themselves with such a bitch of a mother in their life. I am thankful I grew up with a mother who taught me to be me regardless of other people's bullshit.

I'm about as different as they come. I'm a gay liberal witch. That doesn't give ANYONE the right to be cruel to me, period. People need to learn to get their heads out of their asses and accept that the whole world doesn't think the same way they do, and ridiculing people simply because they live their lives differently is ridiculous.

Who pissed in your cheerios and made you such a bitter old hag?

If you knew me you would not think im a bitter old hag. I am a cheerful person and a great mom to my kids. My normal kids who make good grades,play sports and dress decent. I am raising my kids to be contributing members of society. Not kids who think they are "individuales" by dressing and acting like freaks. When in reality they are just conforming to the freaky click they hang out with. They need to take a shower,cut their hair and show some pride in themselves.

Timothy McVey was a "normal" kid whose parents taught him morals, values and to be "a contributing member of society". I may be mistaken, but he was highly intelligent AND served in the military.

Then he killed hundreds. Good thing his parents raised him "normal".

While you are certainly entitled to an opinion, I feel really bad for children whose parents are putting so much judgmental propaganda on their shoulders.

As for the label "freak".... That's sounds more like fear. People in general fear what they don't understand, they don't understand what they haven't taken the time to research and understand. Please don't label anything that you don't 'know'.

Oh! As far as dressing decent-- Charles Manson was described as being good looking, a "ladies man" who looked "normal". At the time that he was a serial killer of women.

And while I also find shorter hair more attractive on males, just because someone has longer hair doesn't mean they haven't showered. So the "get a haircut" but is out of context too.

Ummmm charles manson was not a serial killer of women nor was he consisered attractive. He was a hippy cult leader who instructed some of his followers to kill 5 people at one home (both men and women) & a married couple at another home. You may be referring to ted bundy. He was a serial killer and considered by some to be attractive. Also the word freak means differant from the norm...

The Making of an American Terrorist

The childhood of Timothy McVeigh in Lockport, New York was far from idyllic. His parents divorced in 1978, when Tim was ten, and for the remainder of his school years he lived mainly with his father, Bill McVeigh. Scrawny and unathletic, "Noodle" McVeigh became a target for neighborhood bullies. He attributes a lifelong hatred for bullies of all kinds (a class which, in his view, included an overreaching federal government) to early beatings on softball diamonds and head spinning "swirlies" in flushing toilets. It is possible that McVeigh's fascination with guns, dating to pre-teen years spent admiring his grandfather's .22-caliber rifle, might have something to do with his view of weapons as the great equalizer. He dedicated himself to developing his marksmanship skills, spending hours shooting holes in soft-drink cans in a ravine. By age 14, Tim McVeigh's interests included survivalism. He began stockpiling food and camping equipment in preparation for possible nuclear attack or a communist overthrow of the United States government. Hmmm not realy your notmal child.

Pull the plug on your computer and send your children to school instead. Enroll them in a music class, dancing class, language course, cooking class, pottery, take up in-ine skating, jogging, soccer, tell them to mow the lawn, sweep out the garage and clean their room!

When they get done with all of that (and still want to go on-line) they'll have gained so much personal character that "bullying" won't phase them in the least.

With 7 billion people on this planet, and each person being his or her own, and our DNA make-up never the same, and no two people alike...I'm sorry, I find it hard to even be able to set a standard for "normal". Even if there were a standard for "normal", being unique does not give anyone else the right to be cruel.

You should be teaching your children kindness, compassion, and love. Not how to be "normal".

I teach my kids to be kind and loving. I also teach them to be realistic. If you are going to be successful in life sitting around whining about how unfair life is and how people are mean and bullies will not get you there. Act like a victim and you will be a victim. If nobody likes you...guess what it might be YOU. Take a look at yourself and figure out what you can improve on. You are what you make yourself.

Your little rant leaves one with a single thought ...... there are no victims, only those who think they are.

And you actually have kids of your own? Poor things! It's good that you teach them "to be kind and loving" but I can see that you haven't learned how to put it into effect yourself - or even have the ability to fake "a good example" of it.

You are scary.

The only reason why a human being should be looked down upon is if they are cruel themselves. If I am kind and loving, then I should be treated with kindness and love, regardless of how I dress, my sexuality, my religion, or anything else. Treat people as they treat you, and as you wish to be treated. Isn't that like, one of the Christian God's favorite sayings? Love thy neighbor as thyself?

Still getting People who go to church confused with Christians I see. Anywho

There is no excuse for not identifying an online attacker, and then filing charges. Stop depending on your local PD to find these "Cyber Bullies". Your local Police are idiots. The steps to identifying any online attack is pretty simple. Even without these steps, be creative. Trick them, you would be surprised how easy they are to trick/trap. They aren't the brightest of kids usually.
