Last night, my family and I sat down to enjoy a movie together, and instead of being entertained, I was moved to tears with the movie we chose: Cyberbully. The movie started with a group of seemingly normal teenage girls who are involved in all the token high school activities. They reminded me much of my girls. The movie carried me through some days in their life of high school. Times have changed so much. The kids in high school are soooo mean. To make a very long story short: the kids began to harrass one girl on a cite much like Facebook. The main character, as most teens do, felt the end of her world had found her due to the mean, crude jokes and posts put on her wall. The main character tries to take her own life due to the immense harrassment. The mother of the main character and the main character (once she’s well enough) decide to fight back and a law is finally passed prohibiting cyberbullying, for up till then the state couldn’t control what peers said to one another over the web. As a mother, it frightens me to imagine one of my children could ever be involved or on the receiving end of such atrocities. I wanted to speak out as a child who had been bullied and as a concerned mother to bring awareness to what may be happening right under our noses. Please speak to your children, share this movie (ABC family rating), and get involved. You could save a life.
