Will tougher anti-bullying laws make a difference?

Yes-as long as they are enforced thru out the school district. Need to make staff accountable also if they fail to take action on a complaint.

NO. I think kids should be taught to fight back, not constantly seek help for everything. Adults are out of their mind, putting so many different people in one tiny space and thinking everyone will get along.

While they may make a difference, parents can best monitor cyberbullying-specific instances by having a solid understanding of what their kids are doing online on social networking sites like Facebook.

NO! Why make a LAW for this? Each school district needs to create strict policies. Inviting the law into this is inviting disaster.

Yes as long as the laws are consistent and firm enough to get the message across that hey we are not going to accept this type of behavior

Absolutely. Anything that will help reduce this problem is a good thing. It may not be the only solution, but it's certainly a step in the right direction.

Yes, as long as the parents of the victims are willing and able to hold the bully, the bully's parents and the school accountable in a legally appropriate way.

I think anti-bullying laws and programs should be key. Our children should feel SAFER at school than we adults do as we go through our daily lives.

This is issue for the most schools,I believe.The worst part of bullying that it now begins in 1st-2nd grade.And in some cases luck of Principal leadership, covered by the words " politically correct diversity"stands on the way of handling it. I hope.

Yes I do because it needs to stop and I have watched teachers principles stand outside their classroom and watch this happen and do nothing
