    and understand that their actions have permanent consequences.  Just taking away that little brat's social media?  Big deal.

    Since the only thing they apparently care about is their standing with their peers and friends, that should be where the focus is.

    How about having to stand in front of the whole school assembly, holding a sign that says, "I am a harassing bully?"  Or wear a great big "B" letter for a semester?

    Plus, immediately getting kicked out of all honor societies, teams, cheerleading, any kind of extra-curricular activities - and make restitution.  Volunteer work, as well, for all time not actually spent in class or doing homework.  Preferably, boring, dirty, and time-consuming.

    And NO access to social media or the Internet.

    Yes, teens do stupid stuff, but it's the job of parents and other adults to show them why it's not okay.
