Our next First Lady, Melania Trump, announced that cyber bullying awareness will be a topic she intends to tackle. Many people have raised their eyebrows about her choice given her husband’s nasty Twitter rants and taunts during the presidential campaign. But, given that she is the mother of 10 year old son and bullying among children is at an all time high, I hope she will help open the conversation and help make an impact on this important topic.

According to the website Stomp Out Bullying one out of four kids is bullied and depending on their ages up to 43% of students have been bullied while online. www.stompoutbullying.org
