Preventing Cyberbullying
August 28, 2015
Sow an act, and you reap a habit; sow a habit, and you reap a character; sow a character, and you reap a destiny.

Good magazine told the story of Trisha Prabhu, a 14-year-old Illinois high school student, who heard about a young girl's suicide due to bullying on the Internet and set out to find a long-term solution to cyber-bullying. Her research led her to create the product Rethink, which won her a spot as a Google Science Fair 2014 Global Finalist.

"Rethink gives adolescents who are trying to post an offensive message on social media a second chance to reconsider their decision... The program recognizes when users enter phrases often used to cyberbully into a computer—and displays a pop-up window asking the writer to reconsider. The Chicago high school student's own studies find that a simple prompt ('Are you sure you want to send that message?') is enough to discourage its teen users from sending nasty missives a whopping 93 percent of the time."






Research shows that stress in the crucial early years of a child's life can pose dramatic, lasting challenges to development, learning, and behavior. This is the practical book early childhood professionals need to recognize stress in young children—and intervene with proven relief strategies before pressures turn into big problems. Developed by celebrated early childhood expert Alice Sterling Honig, this guidebook helps readers address the most common causes of stress in a young child's life, including separation anxiety, bullying, jealousy, and family circumstances.
