Now, For a Real Talk on Cyberbullying



Why the long absence


If you’ve noticed, I have been absent from my dear website for quite a long time. To be honest, there were some issues related to psychological abuse that I had to deal with. In-person bullying and some cyber bullying. You have no idea how psychologically jarring it was. I’m still terribly shaken from the experience.


Google Adsense


Also, today,  I received my PIN from Google Adsense. Thank God, that’s like the shake that I needed to get out of the rut I was in, pick up the pieces, and continue my journey towards the improvement of my life.


Back on track


So, now, I’d like to think that I’m back on track. I will continue writing for this website of mine, with or without a big audience (yet, I hope).


I had a case of “allowing myself to get sidetracked.” Hopefully, that shouldn’t happen again. I was only about able to keep my sanity intact despite the harrowing psychological abuse I was subjected to.  It’s a good thing that I have a lot of bills to pay. That somehow helped me push myself to get up every day and show up for work with my trademark smile.

What a coincidence



As if it’s any coincidence, today, a Japanese student of mine told me that he is flying to Taipei soon to make a survey on cyberbullying in the country. That student and I worked on refining the questions in his questionnaires, which are supposed to be handed out to different sectors there, including the police.


The survey aims to check people’s awareness of the issue, the severity of the issue, and the countermeasures taken by the government, the companies, and their schools there. In addition, the survey hopes to get ideas on how cyberbullies are detected.

Let’s hear from you


Now, I want to ask you those same questions.  Feel free to give me your  candid thoughts on the issue.

    There should be a lesson in the classroom setting on Cyber bullying, in addition to parents be made aware of this, its dangers, etc. it should be a corroborative effort between school, parents and children.

      It’s a growing issue in Japan, so its government is actually starting to learn from the best practices of other countries. From how my student framed his questions, it looks like they’re looking at it from different angles. Yes, schools, where children stay most of their time, should work with parents and children.

    Being educated in a catholic school, many, many moons ago, there is no such thing as CB. I remember girlish ‘clique’ but not CB. It really makes me wonder, why? The kids in their developmental years are not taught how to respect others? Where are the parents of these cyber bullies? Shouldn’t parents teach their children kindness and the golden rule? The schools too have the responsibility to incorporate CB in the good manners and right conduct subject or is GMRC subject has been phased out?
    Education is the key to stop CB, it is just pure evil and mean spirited, nothing to be laughed about.

      I don’t really know. For one, I stayed in public internet cafes when my internet wasn’t hooked up yet. My, wasn’t I shocked! Exactly the same school-age children come every day, with some staying there from morning till night. I think they’re mostly playing DOTA. The language is just so foul. If not, they are on Facebook, watching and laughing to their hearts’ content, and sharing not really the good stuff, but the questionable ones. Then they chime in with their bullyish comments like it’s the most fun thing in the world to do. These CB take so much liberty. Education is indeed key to stop them from multiplying.
