How we can stop cyber bullying once it start:
Because their motives differ, the solutions and responses to each type of cyber bullying incident has to differ too, there is not a solution for all the different cases of the cyber bullying, but one of the most preventive solutions is to reported it at time.
What is the schools role in this?
When schools try and get involved by disciplining the student for cyber bullying actions that took place off-campus and outside of school hours, they are often sued for exceeding their authority and violating the student's free speech right. Schools can be very effective to stop cyber bullying, because it can put sanctions to the person that do cyber bullying, or expulse of the institution.
What's the Parents' Role in This?
The parents can be a way of help if the tings be bad online or offline. But the kids didn’t say to her parents. Why? Because the parents tends to overreact the situation. Most of the kids prefer to don’t tell to her parents because it has fear to only make the things worse. (Calling the other parents, the school, blaming the victim or taking away Internet privileges.) Unfortunately, they also sometimes underreact, and rarely get it "just right."
