Our Ken Shallcross wrote a guest column/letter to the editor for a paper in Michigan in response to and article about the new anti-bullying bill just signed by Governor Snyder. A must read for every parent with a child active online, no matter where you live!
I personally would like to thank Senator Glenn Anderson for explaining his decision to vote against the recent anti-bullying bill, and commend him for exposing the inadequacies of the bill. He is certainly on to something, if what he says is true. It appears that while the bill has good intentions, there seems to be a lack of accountability. That prompts me to ask: what good are laws if there is no recourse?
Parents, it's time we take matters into our own hands. We have watched for the past few years as cyberbullying has indeed become the biggest online threat our kids face today. But sadly, the problem won't go anywhere - no matter how many laws get passed - until the parents of the bullies KNOW what their kids are doing online and care enough to step in and stop it.

As we make way into this second decade of the 21st century, parents must accept the fact that our human lives have become immersed in technology and the Internet. That goes double for our kids. But just because everyone is using it, does not mean it's completely safe. In fact, it is just the opposite. Just as in the real world, there are people in cyberspace that aim to harm others.
-- Montgomery News, Parent Express --
It is a sad reality of the world we live in that our children are not safe to go on the computer for educational, gaming or social purposes without parents being worried that their kids are possibly being preyed upon by adults who do not have good intentions. But there are things you can do and PC Pandora can be a part of the solution!
