Cyber Bullying

You discover that your son's schoolmate is making fun of him on Facebook (though not yet off-line).  Do you complain to the school?

Yes. Cyber bullying is serious.  Go to the principal first: If it's happening on school Internet systems, the school may be legally required to take action.  Also, you can file a complaint with the Web site involved or the bully's Internet service provider or cell phone company.  For details, see cyberbullying.org.
