What is the connection between cyberbullying and teen depression? by Mind Map: What is the connection between cyberbullying and teen depression?

1. Cyberbullying does not affect teen depression.

1.1. People are going to get that idea if we keep saying bullying causes suicide (Temkin).

1.1.1. Debora Temkin, a bullying prevention manager states that ¨anti-bullying laws were made because of the fear "bullying causes suicide"¨ (Temkin).

1.1.1.1. This quote means that not all bullying causes suicide. I think it depends how strong the bullying is that can or cannot cause suicide.

1.1.2. Debora Temkin, a bullying prevention manager claims that ¨we can't prevent suicide by preventing bullying¨ (Temkin).

1.1.2.1. This quote matters because preventing bullying cant prevent suicide, because sometimes people get depressed by something else that happened in their lives.

1.2. Since 2005, the number of bullying has gone down (Christensen).

1.2.1. Jen Christensen states that ¨we have passed the anti-bullying law¨ (Christensen).

1.2.1.1. This quote makes me think that even though we passed the anti-bullying law and could help a lot of kids, there are still people getting bullied.

1.2.2. Jen Christensen explains that ¨the law has helped tons of people who were getting bullied¨ (Christensen).

1.2.2.1. This quote shows that the law may have helped a lot of people and laws can sometimes help a lot of people.

1.3. Because a lot of the time, the bullying wont be as serious and just gets annoying that doesn´t cause suicide.

1.4. Because preventing cyberbullying is a lot harder than preventing regular bullying.

2. Cyberbullying leads to teen depression.

2.1. Because the bullying wont stop, kids have been committing suicide because bullying has been affecting them so much (Ollove).

2.1.1. Michael Ollove, editor and reporter of The Baltimore Sun newspaper says that ¨a student named Tyler Long committed suicide because he was bullied for having Asperger's Disorder¨ (Ollove).

2.1.1.1. This quote makes me think that it is awful how people can get bullied because they have a disorder. It is not their fault they are like that, so why should they get bullied for that?

2.1.2. An editor and reporter of The Baltimore Sun newspaper states that ¨kids from the age of 12 to 18 have reported being bullied¨ (Ollove).

2.1.2.1. This quote means that kids along that age tend to get bullied because we are going through a lot of stress in school and some kids tend to be very immature.

2.2. Due to Twitter and Facebook, cyberbulling has increased now a days (Ramli & Hutchinson).

2.2.1. David Ramli and James Hutchinson explains ¨how someone reinforced the law to help children with cyberbullying and not adults¨ (Ramli & Hutchinson)

2.2.1.1. This matters because not a lot of adults ever get bullied, adults are very mature than some kids are.

2.2.2. David Ramli and James Hutchinson say ¨that the government will not put criminal offences to cyber-bullies¨ (Ramli & Hutchinson).

2.2.2.1. This quote shows it can be very hard tracking the cyber bully because a lot of them tend to hide their identities, so it is hard pressing criminal charges agents them.

2.3. Because bullying can get really worse to where it leads to physical behavior or telling them to kill themselves.

2.4. Because it is easier for kids to get bullied online because cyber bullies can easily hide their identities.
