  • Cyberbullying is not an easy situation. If you are a minor, it would be best to talk to an older person, perhaps a parent or a teacher. If you are older, perhaps it would be best to avoid any situation where the bully would be present. As a way of helping everyone especially the parents, who still find it quite hard to manage issues like this, 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. #SafekidZone, Check it here:
