I don't think anyone is ignoring the mistakes she made.   The fact is though, everybody makes stupid mistakes and it doesn't mean that you deserve to be beat up or tormented daily for it.

No, it doesn't...but sadly, that is how people are. That happens to some kids that do NOTHING to deserve it.

Sorry but don't ever rely on your child telling you just because they say they would. A bullied person goes into a different / altered mindset from their normal esteem level, a stress level that may see and dictate things differently. For many kids admitting they need help or asking for help from their parents is a complex stressful task. Depends on the relationship, but parents may be the last to know anything because the kid fears disappointing or causing the parent pain. It's talks regarding the more in depth emotions and mental states and plan of action on how the parent would react/support the situation that could make the bigger difference.

Maybe because I am a single mom, but, we have a closer relationship.  I also have her friends confiding in me.  So, yeah, I do have faith in my daughter discussing things with me.  We went through her being bullied once already and she knows that mom will step in and get the school involved to rectify the situation.  I was bullied myself, so I know the mindset and that is why I make sure that my daughter is aware that we can't just take it, we must stop it.

A man who posted negative comments about the death of Amanda Todd was fired from his job after an Airdrie, Alta., woman alerted his employer.

This is a good start.  People need to be held responsible for their actions.

I know, I don't get it.  I have really disliked people in my life, but never ever wanted to see them die.  And I most definitely wouldn't get on a site and put down a complete stranger who killed herself.  They are definitley lacking in humanity IMO.

Not knowing her or her peers personally I can't say.  I haven't heard anything like that reported in the news before though.

from all that I read, no, it is not true.  There are a lot of people who are throwing accusations and nasty comments her way and this is causing a lot of problems with the RCMP trying to investigate.  I love how so many people try to blame the victim for being bullied/abused.
