Editorial Reviews

Review

?It provides an excellent overview of bullying research in general, paying proper attention to research from around the world, and a good overview of the cyberbullying research, much of which the authors have been directly involved in conducting.? (Research Papers in Education, August 2009)

?The authors provide current research that informs the reader as to the pervasiveness of this event in the lives of children everywhere-no child is immune.? (Family Journal, April 2009)

?Cyber Bullying provides the most current and essential information on the nature and prevalence of this epidemic, providing educators, parents, psychologists and policy-makers with critical prevention techniques and strategies for effectively addressing electronic bullying.? (The Parent Report, March 2009)

?Champions and critics of the [cyberbullying] laws agree that preventive education is a more powerful deterrent to cyberbullying than discipline. That notion is supported by Patricia Agatston, co-author of Cyber Bullying: Bullying in the Digital Age and a counselor at Cobb County School District's Prevention-Intervention Center in Georgia.? (Washington Post, January 2009)

?A must-read for anyone who has access to technology, and it is particularly relevant for any parent and educator who works with youth. Cyber Bullying provides eye-opening and helpful suggestions for helping parents and educators monitor and track students' use of technology. Provides a very useful roadmap for educators and parents about this phenomenon.? (PsycCritiques)

"The school bully isn't necessarily that oversized, physically intimidating kid anymore. Humiliation by words has become just as popular--if not more so--as children's social lives have migrated online...The authors of Cyber Bullying: Bullying in the Digital Age, which comes out November 14, interviewed approximately 150 middle and high school students during the spring and fall of 2006. Aside from their own first-hand research, the book includes a plethora of statistics from leading academic researchers covering cyberbullying and real-life bullying around the world." (CNET Networks)

"A very helpful guide to the cyber world for parents, teachers, school counselors and parent educators." (NASAP Family Newsletter)

?Much needed addition ? .Mandatory reading for parents of adolescents and school personnel, administrators and teachers ? .Now is the time to read this book.? (Metapsychology)

?A useful introduction to the growing problem of electronic harassment among children. The chapters providing advice to parents and educators are quite helpful.? (American Journal of Psychology)

Review

“Fascinating, eye-opening reading about one of the most insidious problems facing anyone working with children and teens, and anyone caring about school violence.”
Michael Popkin, Ph.D., author, Taming the Spirited Child: Strategies for Parenting Challenging Children Without Breaking Their Spirits

“Bullying in The Digital Age effectively uses real life stories, research and data from leading organizations like i-SAFE to provide the world with the who, what, when, where and how of cyber bullying. This is the most comprehensive look at Cyber Bullying to date and will be a great tool for years to come.”
Teri Schroeder, CEO of i-SAFE, Inc.

"An indispensable resource that combines new research and specific, practical techniques to help parents, schools, and communities protect young people from cyber-bullying. This book will make a difference!"
Stan Davis, author, Schools Where Everyone Belongs

5.0 out of 5 stars A book that educators and parents should read! December 22, 2007
Format:Paperback
If you are a parent of an adolescent or an educator, this book is a must read. As the authors have stated, the impact of students using computers, etc. has had not only a positive but also a negative impact on the learning environment and safety issues within our schools. Cyberbullying in its infancy is creating an epidemic of problems. Awareness of the problem, what schools and parents should do to address cyberbullying, how the different states and schools systems view cyberbullying, and current resources are discussed by the authors. It is a compilation of the most current research.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read! June 12, 2008
By Reader
Format:Paperback
I spent a lot of time researching a good book on the subject of cyberbullying. I found this book to be the most informative, well written, and illuminating. The authors are obviously experts in the field and document their statements with research. They give a broad overview of the subject and then offer concrete suggestions to parents and teachers for combatting the problem. I appreciated their Intervention Tips and I found suggestions there for new ways of monitoring children's use of the computer. This is a must read for any parent -- and educator -- as the authors also include a separate chapter on What Educators Can Do. As a parent, I also found that chapter helped me see how I might work with my child's school to control bullying and cyberbullying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cyber Bullying Bullying in the Digital Age December 28, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am taking a class and signed up for Cyber Bullying. This book is fantastic! It tells you all about the traditonal forms of bullying and then compares it to cyber bullying. The research was an eye opener. Perfect book for parents and how they can intervene should cyber bullying take place against a child of theirs. Also what educators can do. The school is a mighty force in protection and education regarding bullying.

I am always anxious to start reading. I would recommend this book to anyone. Cyber bullying is getting out of control.
