AMARILLO -- Bullying is an issue spreading in schools across the country.
All month, KAMR NBC 4 is putting a spotlight on bullying, keeping kids from becoming victims. But because of the popularity of social media, bullying has now evolved. It's called, cyber bullying.
"85% of youth who use the internet have claimed to have been bullied online, and the thing about cyber bullying is that everyone sees it," said David Boaz of Family Support Services in Amarillo. "In a school setting sometimes people are bullied one on one and it hurts but it's an even bigger deal when it's online because all of their friends see it."
To take cyber bullying head on, FSS has started the "I love you, I still love you" campaign. The program promotes being friendly to peers both at school and on-line.
52% of teens who are cyber bullied, never do tell their parents.
