    we all have different views but we need to leave those out of this thread and just together realize that bullying is bad news and have some sympathy for the parents of this poor girl

    What happened to this girl, and anyone else who have had similar experiences, is a tragedy. Yes she made a few bad decisions, but everyone has. It's called growing up. In an ideal world we learn from them and move on. In this world, those decisions are sometimes used to torture or torment. I have worked with kids of all ages who have had experiences that no one should have, and it's very hard for a teenager to ask an adult for help. They think they are grown up and should be able to deal with things, and they are ashamed and embarassed when they can't. For something like this to happen to me would result in police charges for stalking and assault. For it to happen to her, resulted in feelings of shame and depression so deep that she felt that there was no other way out. I understand that suicide leaves behind a lot of feelings of sadness, anger, and confusion; but I can't even imagine the pain that a person would feel to think that dying was the better choice. This story and video should serve no other purpose than to show everyone how vigilant we all have to be in protecting our children, and our friends children, and our neighbors children, and any other child out there who feels that this is their only choice.

    It goes to show that that as a parent I have a huge responsibility in my sons life to ensure he is not a bully and is not bullied. Parents played a huge role in what happened to this young lady.

    The reason I made this thread was to remind people about bullying and how its still very common in society. I was bullied when I was young and thoughts of suicde did run through my head briefly. I'm sure we have all been bullied or have bullied others in some form.

    I didn't make this to hear peoples thoughts on how or what she or her parents did wrong. It seems like that is unavoidable. I made this so we can be reminded about how our actions reflect others.

    Appologizes for the personal attacks

    Which is why you have to talk to your kids and be a persistant entity in their lives. Even if they start closing down, you need to tell them you love them, and that no matter what, you got their back to deal with anything. I'm not saying her parents didn't. Shit happens. It's horrible and I wish only the best for the family.

    RIP Amanda Todd

    People make choices respect them even if you dont agree.
    I just read this thread I'm surprised what it turned into, I personally feel I've gotten support from members on here that are strangers, if you have nothing good to say just dont say anything.

    OR he could mean have some manners even though you are shielded by the anonymity of the internet and realize that your opinion or comments could be hurtful to others no matter how remote the chance.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion but knowing where, when and how to express it is something some seem to have a problem with.

    Not pointing fingers or trying to start sh*t, just saying.

    This not a case of bullying. This a case of stalking. And a case of child pornography distribution. The police should have pursued this as stalking and sexual exploitation of a child.

    And yes, parenting plays a major role in things that children do today. You say, parents have little control over what kids do outside that home. I say that is because parents have no control in the home. Children are raised to believe that it is okay to flash, its okay to sext each other. Its okay to be on Chat Roulette. They don't get told these things are wrong. They see their parent's drunk, drugged, having affairs and sexting so its thought to be OK by the kids.

    Sadly, these things led to this girls death. My thoughts on that and the cause will remain off TW.

    I had parental control in my house from day 1. Serious control. No TV, no public school, no personal cell phone, no access to computer except to do school work. It was far from jail.
