How many people kill themselves in a day from cyber-bullying or bullying?

The potential for kids to use the internet as a weapon for bulling is enormous. Estimating that more than 13 million children aged six to 17 were victims of cyber bullying, the poll also revealed that more than two million of those victims told no one about being attacked. One-third of all teens (ages 12-17) and one-sixth of children (ages 6-11) have had mean, threatening or embarrassing things said about them online. 10 percent of the teens and four percent of the younger children were threatened online with physical harm. 16 percent of the teens and preteens who were victims told no one about it. About half of children ages 6-11 told their parents. Only 30 percent of older kids told their parents. Preteens were as likely to receive harmful messages at school (45 percent) as at home (44 percent). Older children received 30 percent of harmful messages at school and 70 percent at home. 17 percent of preteens and seven percent of teens said they were worried about bullying as they start a new school year. 8 percent of those effected by cyber bullying try to commit suicide.
