This Emotional Life – Cyberbullying

This Emotional LifeI finally had the chance to watch PBS’s This Emotional Life, that you can find on Netflix and other on-demand services. It was a three-part series that covered many topics, including bullying and cyberbullying.

The segment below, which can be found on YouTube, covers the Cyberbullying segment of the show. I certainly recommend this show for those that want to better understand the emotions that go with the long-term effects and suffering that many feel due to what has happened to them in the past or just the way their mind’s process life’s inputs that happen to them.

  1. Why is it that cyber-bullying prevention and assistance mainly focuses on children and not adults? It can be as damaging as being in an abusive relationship. Cyber-bullying does not require that the person be online. Others can exchange insults, pass gossip and lies about them, and even impersonate them in social media and online comments.

      • aeisenbe, thanks for your response.

        Children who are cyber-bullied may experience disappointments with the adults they report to who do nothing about it.

        When I read the other day that charges were dismissed against the girl who bullied Rebecca Sedgwick, my heart dropped. Turns out that Florida has no law against cyber-bullying.

        So many other states however, do have law against harassment via all forms of communications, but they are as good as a blank piece of paper when prosecutors are not interested because penalties are insignificant.
