LOS ANGELES, Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Is your child cyber bullied? The statistics are scary: Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, and victims of bullying are two to nine times more likely to consider taking their own lives than non-victims (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Sadly, another name was added to the death toll with the tragic passing of a 12-year-old girl in Florida who was the victim of extreme cyber bullying. This incident of extreme bullying resulted in the arrest of a 14-year-old girl and a 12-year-old girl.
