Bullying has become a serious issue both at school and at home for many American children.
The Centers for Disease Control says about 20 percent of students in grades 9 through 12 experience bullying. That number rises to 28 percent when expanded to sixth through twelfth graders.
Technology allows bullies to harass kids 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; not just at school. The 2011 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance Survey found 16 percent of high school students in grades 9 through 12 were electronically bullied in the past year.
