Florida's Attorney General's Office giving students lesson on 'cyber-bullying'

STUART, Fla. -- Florida's Attorney General's Office is giving a lesson on "cyber-bullying" Tuesday.

Sixth grade students at Murray Middle School in Stuart learned the dangers of online predators as well as how to handle bullies online.

Josie Ashdon from Pam Bondi's office also talked about the consequences kids can face if they're involved in harassing others on the Internet.

"We need to make sure they don't give identifying information, like their age, the school they attend, their parents name and last name, want to make sure the kids try to keep their family safe, want them to be aware there are adults pretending to be children," said Ashdon.

Officials warned the students that information and photos they put online now could come back to hurt them when they're older.
