WESTPORT - A Westport synagogue had a large turnout tonight at a program to educate parents on how to protect their children from bullies in the classroom and online.

Organizers say the topic is relevant in light of a recent YouTube video posted by a Westport middle school student about being bullied.

Forensic psychologist Dr. S. David Bernstein coached parents on the topic at the Westport Conservative Synagogue.

Parents say Bedford Middle School sent an email on Friday saying that among other things, the school is counseling students about the consequences of cyber-bullying.
