Consider this:

72% of teens report being cyberbullied in the past year.

How do teens react?

3 million skip school each month to avoid it. That's the equivalent of the entire city of Chicago not showing up for work!

Even worse, only 1 in 6 parents are aware their child is being bullied online.

Cyberbullying continues to be a major problem among teen users of social networks.

To shed more light on the topic, the team at [Rawhide] (http://www.rawhide.org/) - a non-profit helping at-risk youth in Wisconsin - has put together a detailed infographic covering prevalence, teen reaction, common types of bullying, why teens don't report it, consequences, plus warning signs and tips for parents.
