  1. i think that people who get bullied and cry about it probly need to harden up if there not going to tell someone!

  2. thtas why kids should wait to use online chat rooms as a matter of fact they shouldnt even have one and if they choose to they need to make their decisions more wisely

  3. I was once cyberbullied and i learned to live with it. If you’re nice to them theyll be nice to you. So just dont be annoying to them and they wont moan and groan at you.
