Dr. Cora Breuner joined the show to talk about how to handle cyberbullying and what information should be given to parents and kids. Tragedy struck last month when twelve-year-old Rebecca Sedwick jumped to her death after being cyberbullied. Two girls, 12 and 14 years old, are now charged with aggravated stalking. When it started, Rebecca's mother tried to take her off-line and moved her to a different school. But what the mother didn't know, according to reports, is that the bullies found Rebecca again, this time through phone apps.
