  Cyberbullying-Infographic-final1 Contributed by Rawhide 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.
