Letter to the editor: Ban Yik Yak app

Have you read the bullying statistics? According to this article http://nobullying.com/bullying-statis...
83 percent of girls, and 79 percent of boys report being bullied either in school or online.
◾75 percent of school shootings have been linked to harassment and bullying against the shooter.
How can you hold a child accountable for their behavior if you can't prove who's behind the nasty, sexually explicit comments on Yik Yak? Have you visited this app? In a perfect world we would all be great responsible parents and our kids would be well behaved. In this world that is far from reality. Did you know that suicide among our children is up? I would think that to solve a problem it takes more than one solution. I'd start with banning this app and continue with your suggestion of continued education for parents and children alike. At least by giving people the facts about the problem, we can open up a dialog with others and our children.

I agree. When a job needs to be filled, you look for the best qualified person. Take a look at who is most qualified to do the job. I agree with jumairs on this paticular comment. As to who's the best man for the job. Let them tell us.
