LOS ANGELES, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the biggest concerns facing parents today is helping their children deal with bullying and the increased pressure of social media and cyberbullying. Children spend an average of 45 hours per week online, much less time than they spend with both teachers and parents combined.
"I've been asking myself: why are so many negative comments posted online every day, and how are kids affected by seeing all this negativity?" says producer and director Leana Greene. "How do you explain to your child the importance of being kind online, when it's hard to find even one YouTube video without a negative comment? Suicide is the third leading cause of death in young people, resulting in 4,400 deaths every year [according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention]. We have to teach our children that words can kill, both in person and online."
Kids in the House interviewed 16 children from the Los Angeles area that have experienced bullying, as well as leading experts, to explore how to stop bullying, and to get clear advice on what to do when it happens.
"We discovered that there is no simple fix to end bullying, but we hope to play a role in keeping the conversation going. We think everyone should take a close look at their words and actions online," says Leana Greene.
We hope that you will help us share the message… Empower kids to #ENDBULLYING.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
