Nobody wants to hear it

Speaker talks to parents, children and tells it like it is

By Bobbie Poynter

Editor

Cyber Bullying.DSCN2845 web

It wasn’t an easy presentation to listen to, and it often made people uncomfortable, but it was something everyone needed to hear.

Thanks to an invitation by Knox County UNITE, 17-year veteran police officer Scott Harvey has spent the last few days in Knox County talking to students, teachers, and parents about the horrors of cyber bullying and the posting of inappropriate photos (or porn as described by the law). As a father of two teenage girls, Harvey encourages parents to take an active role in learning what their children are seeing and putting out there on the web. Statistics, he said, show that nearly every young girl will at some time be coerced into posting something inappropriate on the web, usually by her peers. Likewise, young men are just as prone to posting or forwarding inappropriate photos on the web.
