E-mail Hacking and Cyber Bullying
Email Hacking and Cyber Bullying
Teenagers seem to have a fixation with hacking. Some think it is a cool thing to be able to breech someone’s password and hold it hostage for as long as they can.
This is illegal, unethical, and should be reported to your ISP, local law enforcement and anyone else that you believe can help resolve the situation.
This can also be something that a cyber bully can use to destroy relationships that your child has.
Your child has a pen pal in Austria and they have been sending emails to each other for a couple of years. They have become great friends. A cyber bully takes over your child’s email address and send them an email saying, don’t bother me anymore, I don’t like you. And then before you know it, the pen pal is no longer talking to your child because they think the friendship is over.
Let’s say that a cyber bully gets a hold of the victims grandmothers email address, the bully could write the grandmother saying that he is your child and he has a serious problem with drugs and needs help. Before you know it you receive a phone call about this and everyone is thinking that there is a drug problem. All because a cyber bully thought it would be funny to do this.
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.

Is online bullying fun?
Cyber bullying may seem like a fun thing for the person that is doing the bullying, but this most likely leaves the victim feeling isolated and depressed. As a parent you need to take every possible action to prevent this kind of behavior affecting your child’s life.
Is cyber bullying a group effort?
In many instances cyber bullying can be a group effort. It may be initiated by one person, but before too long there are others that take it upon themselves to intimidate the victim. This can often leave a child feeling very "small" when a group of bullies are on the prowl.
Learn what to do
With proper planning, talking to your children about cyber bullying is not as difficult as you may think. In fact, taking the first steps to resolving or discovering this kind of activity will diminish the chances that they will encounter it in the first place.
"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."
