South Dakota Focus: School Yard Bully

SD Focus - 04/16/2009

On our April 16th edition of South Dakota Focus, we take a closer look a the new face of a school yard bully. Twenty five years ago what was an exchange of fists on the playground has now knifes and guns. What was verbal exchanges down a school hallway is now embarrasing rumors posted on the world wide web. The school yard bully is very different for young people today. We'll talk about cyber bullying, how parents can help their own children and communities can work together to help the victims and stop the bullies.
