Bullying looming problem for kids online, survey suggests
« on: May 21, 2008, 08:43:24 PM »
More than half of Canadian parents think the Internet is safe for kids, but nearly 20 per cent of children under 13 say they've been bullied online, a survey released today suggests.

The result should be an urgent sign to parents they have to pay attention to what their kids do while online, said Karen Robbins, an online safety expert with AOL Canada.

The majority of parents let their children use the Internet unattended, she said, an alarming statistic considering there are numerous sexual predators and bullies lurking online.
