Transcription: 
Sometimes our kids become cyberbullies and they never mean to be. Having an unkind opinion does not necessarily make you a bully. If you and a friend are having a conversation about somebody else and you say I really did not like what that person wore today. It is not very nice but that is not a bullying situation. When you take those unkind opinions online to Facebook, email or IM, or in a way everyone gets to weigh in and give their opinion about that person and what he or she wore that day, that is when things get way out of hand. When our children understand that their unkind opinions taken online have serious ramifications, we will be able to change the culture and stop cyberbullying.
