Columbus, OH – Bullies at school are nothing new. Brash, tough-talking, food or money-stealing kids who often push, shove and embarrass others transcend generations. But Ohio University professor Christine Bhat says bullying has now gone digital in the form of intimidating e-mails, instant messages and web-pages. Bhat says thousands of kids are picked on by cyber-bullies everyday, in addition to traditional bullying estimates, which say it takes place every 7 minutes on the playground and every 25 minutes in the classroom.
