Cyberbullying Found as Parents #1 Fear
In response to the recent headlines of teenagers being bullied to death or who had suffered from bullying or cyberbullying, Care.com commissioned a national survey to find out how parents feel about bullying. The findings prove that bullying has become the #1 fear for parents, and that they are taking action to protect their children, both within their own homes and throughout their communities.
The Care.com survey was conducted via a national telephone survey among a weighted sample of 394 adults 18 years of age and older living in private households in the continental United States. Interviewing for the survey was completed during the period October 8-11, 2010.
