Jayne Hitchcock Returns
Frequent guest Jayne Hitchcock returns for the first time since CLBR #184 (June 3, 2015) to discuss her new book “Cyber Bullying and the Wild Wild Web.”
Really, anyone of any age can become the target of a cyberbully. And quite honestly, victims are getting younger and younger every year when it comes to being cyberbullied. Throughout Cyberbullying and the Wild, Wild Web, Hitchcock explains how someone can become victim to cyberbullying and how they can stay safer online. Offering victims, and parents, the chance to be able to relate to and truly understand the unfortunate reality of cyberbullying through real-life examples of what happened to someone who had been through a similar situation.
For much-needed practical advice, from an expert who truly understands the threat of cybercrime, this is a must-have resource to combat the ever-growing problem of internet crime in our society.
As she has done for almost two decades, once again Jayne has provided clarity and hope in area where it so often is lacking. – Bennet Kelley
