Bullying Spotlighted in White House Conference

The fact that bullying is a concern and a common accurance is not anything new.  President Obama stated that all Americans have the responsability to protect children from bullying.  He also mentioned the how negative the effects of bullying can be.  For example often it results in bad grades and in some cases suicide.

With more and more use of the internet cyber bullying is starting to become a concern.  Utilities like facebook have added an antibullying tool to help with this.  With the internet providing more ways to contact others it adds numerous more ways to bully other. 

I agree that it is up to all Americans to protect children, but I believe the most important job is to parents to set a good example.
