An Update to include Protecting Children’s Privacy Online

Cyberbullying has become a real hot-button issue in recent years.  It could be happening in your library or to teens using your library.  A recent blog article by Julie Greller of A Media Specialist’s Guide to the Internet compiles a list of cyberbullying resource links that could come in handy if you are confronted with a cyberbullying situation.

A couple of sites that stand out from the list include:

  • — This site provides information about  a wide range of teen issues for both teens and parents.
  • Report Cyberbullies — As the title indicates, this resource tells you how to report cyberbullies and what information you need to do so.
  • — Childnet in an international non-profit organization helping to make the internet a great and safe place for children.
  •— Protecting Children’s Privacy Online – A Guide for Parents, Carers and Educators
