Re "Young people less tolerant of online slurs" (Page A1, Nov.24): Online bullying is a huge problem throughout schools across the country. Kids and teens are bullied from elementary school to high school. Teens can bully other teens behind their cell phone or computer screen and they will never have to own up to it. Because of bullying, teens can be emotionally and psychologically damaged for the rest of their lives. Students will stay home from school because they are afraid of being bullied or they are embarrassed because of the mean things people say to them. Students and parents need to be aware of the effects of bullying on youths, and we all should do what we can to stop this harmful practice.
