  • 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: http://bit.ly/ZjYchC

      • Bullying can be harsher online because more things can be said
      • Messages can be sent anonymous so the victim does not know who to trust
      • Leads to suicide
      • Only talk to people you know
      • Do not share personal information online
      • Report all cases to parents, school officials and law enforcement if needed
      • Monitor your kids computer use and who they talk to
      • Currently only Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, New Jersey, Oregon, Missouri, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont have laws against cyber bullying
      • As we speak Massachusetts law makers are working on passing legislation that would make cyber bullying a crime in the state
      • Whether bullying is done in person or online, it will always be a threat
      • There can be more done to prevent bullying such as school programs that teach kids consequences and harder laws
      • In closing I want to leave you with this statistic, 25% of females and 16% of males have been bullied online in 2009.
