  • Bullying is a social phenomenon that transcends gender, age, and culture. While there are wide ranges in the definition of the term, bullying is essentially characterized by one or several individuals aggressing on a vulnerable peer, primarily to assert control or power. Thus, being a parent I've learned to be vigilant and more particular on the safety of my teens especially when it comes with bullying cases. Then I found this site that provides a protection for children from a safety mobile protection that can access family, friends and 911 in times of emergency. I just downloaded their application on their iPhone. Here’s where you can find it: http://safetrec.com/

  • Note that it might be kind of funny to watch a penguin do this, but is it ok for humans?!?
  • Note that the “difficult for victim to know who” indicates you can victimize someone without them knowing and affect the way other people treat the victim-encourage more bulling!
  • Note: They did not even know they were offending someone. You can bully inadvertantly…think before you speak.
  • This is long. It is optional. Just inserted to send the message home.
