Cyber-bullying is an extreme issue that affects adolescents every day. There is a large amount of technology that adolescents are exposed to on a daily basis and while some of the exposure can be beneficial, there are negative repercussions as well. These negative affects can come from the harassment that occurs online between adolescents. This bullying can be so extreme that adolescents have gone to drastic measures just to get it to stop. One of the reasons why these measures are taken is that adolescents do not have the support that is necessary to get through difficult times. 

I believe if the school system would implement a service where adolescents could gain support from trusted adults and their peers that have gone through similar experiences, they would have an easier time coping with their experiences. 

Cyber-bullying is a very common occurrence. I am have personally experienced it throughout my time in middle and high school, my sisters have suffered through it, and the majority of my friends have experienced it at one point in their lives. Not having the support at my school made it extremely difficult to cope with my experience. I believe that if there are more resources within the school system, the negative repercussions of cyber-bullying would decrease.
