One of the HUGE issues the past few years has been bullying in the schools.  MTV has decided to come up with an app for your iPhone (and other phones, downloadable from iTunes) called “Over The Line”.  Teens from all over are invited to confess and share how they have been bullied, harrassed or disrespected and then other teens from all over get to vote on whether it was over the line, under it or right on it and at what point it was crossed.  Hopefully, it will cause teens to think about how far is too far.  How is this app helpful?  Identify some different things a teen might post to their website?  Explain how teens who use this app could be helped by it?(You must use 5 COMPLETE SENTENCES or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    This app is helpful because it lets the kids that are being bulled tell other people whats going on. Some teens might put that some one is picking on them because the way they dress or how they look.

    This app probably has helped. It probably helps because it tells the person that’s getting bullied to know when to put a stop to it. i really don’t know

    Well I think this app will help by letting you know that your not the only one. Also that suicide aint the only way. You can get help you don’t have to kill yourself that doesn’t make anything better it just makes things worse, and you will also think about how someone out there really loves you and cares about you! Even though this app wont help the physical or verbal bullying/abuse it will still make you want to get help instead of killing yourself, and it might give you high confidence on the verbal bullying!

    ii think that the new ipod app or the Trevor project would really help prevent bully because it gives the victims the power or courage to fight back or to stand up for themselves. Also it can help victims of bully communicate to see how they deal wit thee situation….

    for kids who dont fight back they get the chance to if they have the Trevor project. but still no kid should be like kaylinn and Shane Starkey. kids need to stop being bullied for wat you wear or wat you do. so i think the Trevor project would be good for kids tht are bullied

    A teen might post on their that this a bull crap. So i am a teen as i write this and i don’t like this at all. If i found out my friend or family was getting silent bullied oh man there would be a huge problem. So other teens might put on the website that that’s bull no one deserves to be bullied. So i don’t even like this at all either.

    well i think that this app could be good to have a opinion with other teen that are getting bullied and also i think that it will be good to tell someone so you don’t end up dead or depressed its not good on a teen or a young student to get bullied this cause dramatic effect so i think that this app will help teens and young children find away to get out there feelings

    I think that htis will be good because kids that are being bullied dont show it most of the time but feel it every second. This could help a whole lot because it could decrease some of these comitted suicides every year from teens. The computer will be the same as in person if you make people feel like there nothing it is going to effect them terribly so stop bullying.

    i think this app is a great idea because people out there who get bullied get a chance to tell people how they feel it was going on. also, because some people are afraid to tell someone what going on in this is a great website where they don’t have to put there name or no ones name and they still get a solution to the problem they have. i think this website will go great cause the people who get bully could tell others they now who get bully to use this website. and people who like to solve a problems and then they could have the whole story on the website. i think this is good for bullies to because if they are bulling they can see how the people they bully feel and it could change there life. i think i will enjoy it and others so i well spread this information to others so they can try it out.

    i think that the website is a good thing for kids that are getting bullied it is a good way to express your self and hopefully letting it out and not holding it in will make the kids that are getting bullied change their mind about suicide.no kid should ever have to suffer that kind of meanness and no kid should feel the need to kill themselves to make it better i thank that if i could help all of them i would and help them change their minds.and not to worry about what other bullies or people may think about them(:)

    I DON’T THINK THIS WILL HELP WITH BULLYING. JUST ANOTHER APP. KIDS DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW PEOPLE NEED TO TREAT OTHERS WITH RESPECT. BUT PEOPLE DON’T CHANGE. KIDS DON’T NEED TO GO THEIR ALL THIS WHEN ITS NOT THEIR FAULT. THIS MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO GET KIDS THINKING ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY FEEL WHEN THEY BULLY.

    No one should have to be treated this way. its not right! it can cause mager problems to the victim. for example they could start to think about killing themselves. and that would be really bad. it could help them by show them how they could deal with the problem.

    I don’t think it will make any difference, it might make bullying worse. If you have a kid picking on someone and the kid being picked on uses the app, and the kid doing the bullying sees it, then the bully might get a big head and think he’s really cool and bully more people. That’s why I don’t think it would be a good idea. Bullies don’t need to get anymore ideas about picking on people.

    well this app could help alot of bullied teens realize what they need to do to about them getting bullied. enough is enough, really i think bullies should be tracked down and sent to jail immidiately on the spot when their bullying. bullying isnt cool, its cruel and wrong to toward another person. i hate when people bully, its just so stupid and hateful. see i got bullied when i was in 5th grade and i dont take it anymore, people have learned to not mess with me anymore becouse i stood up for myself and i have self respect! thats what people need to realize, that they dont have to take bullying from anyone and that if they are getting bullied, then they need to do something about it.! 😀

    This could help teens decide when it is too serious. Also, when to tell an adult. Sometimes bullying could get mistaken for teasing. This could help teens determine the difference between the two. That is my opinion.
