£1,000 fine for cyber bullying

Parents whose children bully classmates using text messages or the internet face £1,000 fines.

The Government is cracking down on 'cyber bullies' who use mobile phones, email and social networking websites to threaten or torment fellow pupils.

Ministers want schools to make greater use of parenting orders, under which fines of up to £1,000 can be imposed on mothers and fathers who fail to rein in bullying

This kind of bullying is nothing and can be ignored. Why doesn’t the government fine parents of children who physically bully classmates and use that money to pay for self defence classes for those that are being bullied.

Children will always bully other children and the government is not going to be able to stop it so they should do everything they can to ensure the children that are bullied have a chance to fight back.
