As I’m situated in Los Angeles, I attempt to sustain with the ins and outs of the bullying and peer abuse downside on this state. Not too long ago, a invoice entitled AB86 launched by Assemblyman Ted Lieu of Torrance would lastly crack down on the cyber bullying that so a lot of our younger individuals face at present. Lastly, we’re cracking down on this by no means ending and ever rising downside. California’s Schooling Code already has one thing within the books about harassment in school. Taking this subsequent step is the perfect information I’ve heard in weeks.
Cyber bullying is bullying that happens on the web, cell telephones and something used electronically. Youngsters will go to social websites like My Area and Fb to arrange these pages towards their classmates and ship bulletins and different messages slandering their good identify. Or, they could go to those web sites that supply free internet hosting and make horrible pages about one another. If the web shouldn’t be sufficient, they use the mobile phone to take photos or make movies and put them up on You Tube which is a free website to publish movies. Additionally, using textual content messaging is used and it goes on and on.Its time that we crack down on our youngsters and train them the seriousness of this downside. We will put legal guidelines on the books all we wish however it’s about schooling and enforcement. Are the colleges taking this critically? What in regards to the mother and father and others locally? Peer Abuse isn’t just a college and office downside however a neighborhood one as properly. Bullying impacts everybody locally; not simply the bully, bullied and bystander. If bullying in particular person shouldn’t be sufficient, now we go to the web.
I commend Assemblyman Lieu on his efforts and lets hold rooting for this invoice to grow to be a legislation. I do know he has my vote within the subsequent election.
