Young People Are Increasingly Likely To Report Online Abuse To Parents: Poll

Over the past few years online harassment has increased tremendously.  Much of this harassment has however been reported to parents instead of officials.  According to a recent poll by MTV, NORC Center for Public Affairs Research forty-nine percent of teenagers and young adults surveyed said that they have come in contact with online harassment.  This is down from about 56 percent in 2011.  As of now around 34 percent of young people reported there harassment to their parents as opposed to about 27 percent two years ago.  The study also showed that girls were more likely to report that they had been bullied as opposed to the boys.  This topic of online bullying and harassment brings up many controversies in ethical values.
