  • I hope that a lot more campaign keep coming to help these youngsters stand up against bullying. This article serves as a message to everyone especially to the parents that we must take action in making sure that are kids don't get bullied or worse become bullies themselves. I am a parent and I'm worried and I don't want that any kid will experience this again. As a way of helping everyone especially the parents, who find it quite hard to manage time, I found this great application which featured a safety app which gets me connected to a Safety Network or escalate my call to the nearest 911 when needed, it has other cool features that are helpful for your kids with just a press of a Panic Button.
