Cyberbullying talk at Appleton library
Appleton — Local writer Kay Stephens, co-author of the just released cyberbullying prevention book “Cyberslammed,” will speak Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. at the Mildred Stevens Williams Memorial Library, 2916 Sennebec Road, across from the Appleton Town Office.
Coinciding with Maine's first cyberbullying law enacted this summer, which requires schools to implement policies to address bullying/cyberbullying, the book was launched under the sponsorship of Time Warner Cable. It informs parents and educators of six specific cyberbullying tactics kids are using (including sexting and anonymous aggression) and how to understand, prevent, combat and transform each tactic. The take-away lessons for parents and educators of teens in 5th to 12th grade are timely and highly informative, and youth this age are more than welcome to attend.
