And socialization is the big anti-homeschool argument

Children's charity NCH surveyed 770 youngsters and found 14% of 11- to 19-year-olds had been threatened or harassed using text messages.

Bullies had used images taken with mobile phone cameras to intimidate or embarrass one in 10 young people.

This included singling out overweight or spotty youngsters and recording and sharing acts of playground violence.

The findings follow reports of so-called "happy slapping" attacks - where assaults on children and adults are recorded on mobile phones and sent via video messaging.

You can include me out of this kind of socialization.
