Recently, I learned that one of the players on my hockey team was Tweeting negative statements about another player. He claims he though that only the other player could see it. We discussed the situation with him, told him it was unacceptable, and asked him to remove the Tweets and apologize to the team. He started out by saying to his teammates, "I was told I need to apologize for Tweeting," and then promptly quit. Wow, talk about lack of sincerity or honesty. The incident offered several "teachable moments", which we will take advantage of as we work through this issue.
Cyberbullying is rampant in the teen-age culture today.
