Even though the media is constantly reporting issues involving students in crisis, as victims, or as perpetrators, most of us want to believe it’s not happening in our school. But with the many popular free and paid products, apps, and services being used today, kids have lots of opportunities for trouble. Learn what’s happening across the country with real life stories from Gaggle's Human Monitoring Services, and what you should be looking out for in our own classroom or school.

Pleas for Help

I am emailing you to let you know I am at the end of my rope. … Either my situation is fixed, to provide me with an optimal learning environment based on MY needs, not my PARENTS, or today will be the last day you see me. This is not a threat, this is not a tantrum, this is a GD promise. And if you try and admit me to a hospital, or put me into custody, I will do whatever it takes, even if it means banging my head against jail bars, I will end my miserable useless existence. .. And if I am going to have to live being as miserable as I am, then I truly, do not want to live anymore. So you tell me, are you going to do what the school wants and my parents think is right by making me isolated and miserable, and see my obituary in the paper, whenever it may appear? …. I suggest you stop wasting time on me, and start using your time and effort on someone who cares about what happens to them…I don't give care if I live or die. All I know is that I'm not going to continue to live, if I am this miserable.

Have you heard of….


Why are kids doing this? • Brain development-can’t predict consequences; invincibility • Need for attention • Media coverage • Peer modeling • Little to no supervision by adults

What can we do?

Opportunities for mistakes Avoidance doesn’t predict success. Kids don’t always do what they are told. Let them learn the hard way… but not too hard. Catch the teachable moments or risk reinforcing the wrong behavior.
