If your child has email they are subjected to inappropriate spam just as much as adults are. Spam emails are mostly derived from phantom computers and run by bots. The bots will not discriminate the age of a person as it has no way to determine how old someone is by their email address.
With that being said a cyber bully could easily find out the person they wish to victimize email address and start signing them up for inappropriate web sites, such as pornographic, hate web sites, and so on.
As time goes by the email inbox could give the appearance that a child is surfing for porn, or actually participating in known hate sites.
With monitoring software you can easily find out if this is the case of your child visiting these kind of places because you can look at the web sites visited section and know what web sites they are going to.
If you find out that your child is not going to those kinds of web sites, there is a good chance that a cyber bully has decided to take it upon themselves to sign your child up for spam.
In many cases if you talk to the bullies’ parents about what is happening, the issue will resolve itself, but if necessary you will have the ability to print out the recorded events and provide them to your local law enforcement agency, or your child’s school guidance counselor.

"When bullying is done over the Internet you think you can get away with it because you don't see the emotional reaction as if it were done face to face. You don't see the person crying and being upset. So it is much easier to be more mean and hurtful. When I received those e-mails It took me long to recover but thank to my Mom who found out right on time I'm back to being my self."
