SummaryCopy from Author, requested due to school/occupation. (I am an Information Security & Forensics student and work in Telecommunication.)Please check out this interview of the author, explaining what the book is about. My ThoughtsCyberbullying is an epidemic, but most parents and teachers have no idea how to handle it. So what is cyberbullying? What methods will teens use to cyberbully? How should parents and teachers monitor their children's online presence? What are the signs that your child is being bullied? When should authorities get involved and once involved what can they do? How do you handle such a situation?These are the types of questions Cyberslammed covers. But it goes beyond just researching this phenomenon (where so many books on cyberstalking stop), it gives advice, instructions, and preventative advice to those suffering in a very easy to read format. I've come across so many helpful but intimidating websites that attempt to give the same advice, but are very difficult to navigate. That is not the case with this workbook. It is very easy to follow. In ClosingI personally feel this should be required reading for all teachers, mentors, and their classrooms. (The book even includes easy to fill in forms to help gather as much information when an incident is reported, and what steps to take.) I recommend this to all parents. Cyberbullying is not going to go away, we must educate ourselves in order to protect ourselves and those we love from this horrible abuse. Cyberslammed is an excellent resource to use.
If you have a teen or need to deal with online harassment this book will make wonders. Practical exercises, tech tactics, and teen vocabulary helps you understand the mindset of a bully.Five real scenarios are described and explained as to how it should be addressed on specific times like the Digital Pile On or when everyone jumps on top of one unfortunate soul. The Rating Sites for unflattering pictures of the victim. The self-described Imposter Profile. The Hater's Club or the fueling on each other's hate against the victim.Some still think is the media propaganda which counts on cyberbullying. But if you have been witness of this degradation, you know is not about propaganda. Watch what your minor is doing on the internet.
