Concord, NH (AHN) - Cyberbullying is on the rise with methods becoming meaner, including posting photos and videos on social networking websites.

A report by the University of New Hampshire's Crimes Against Children Research Center said the number of young Americans between the ages 10 to 17 who experienced online harassment has gone up by 50 percent from 2000 to 2005.

Once upon a time, I was in a chat room where it was vicious, especially this one guy, who, if he didn't like you, he would bomb you or if he knew your email, he would bomb your email account. You could do nothing but log out. He was a vicious, immature kid. Probably in prison, now.

That's why I have a persistent Google alert set up with my kids' names. Anytime Google finds a new page that contains their names (formatted as "Firstname Lastname"), I get an alert. Their names are uncommon, but not unique, so 98% of what Google finds is for people who share their names. I don't mind the chaff, since it gives me peace of mind.

I recommend it for all parents whose kids have uncommon names.
