To be sure, it is often difficult to determine whether behavioral or attitudinal changes in youth are signals of distress or simply the usual “adolescent angst” commonly associated with this difficult transitional period in their lives. Nevertheless, it is important for educators, parents, and other adults to learn to read the behavior of their students and children so that real problems can be detected, diagnosed, and promptly handled. A number of red flags may suggest that a child is experiencing some type of distressing event while online. Identifying these indicators may help to minimize the negative emotional and psychological effects of Internet-based harm.

    The rules of this site are clear and posted so all can see but they don’t follow them. Admin doesn’t care and neither do the mods of the site. I get harassed on a daily basis there by a full on attack made by members of this site. There are over 1000 members of the site that go unchecked and still I block them but they do not block me. I get backstabbed by them and they got a following that is growing. Accusations such as I have more than 1 account which i didn’t. To postings on websites that I go to are presenting a huge issue in my life. I go by Mercers Love there and I have went to admin for help to get the offenders suspended but I got suspended instead. I didn’t say one word to them and get cyber bullied!!I need assistance in this matter. I had to delete my account once due to the stress. In all honesty this Gambling site should be shut down. All it cares about is money and to heck with the ones who can not contribute the amount of money it takes to make the happy.I do know this as a Canadian company this site is illegally allowing people from states in the usa that don’t allow gambling to gamble. They raised the stakes by making it where you have to pay to play any games and to send or receive virtual currency paid for with real money.This site has well over 5 million members and some are pedophiles. This site needs a reality check!
