  • Bullying/Cyberbullying is a huge problem worldwide. That is why parents, cannot stick our heads in the sand when it comes to bullying. We cannot live in denial in the hope that it will not happen to our child. We need to arm ourselves with strategies to educate our children from the youngest age and helping them to learn and grow and to feel confident about themselves, coming out of these situations is the key. Bad things will happen. It’s a part of life and sometimes all you can do is be present for them. 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.

    • Tips for Parents
      Parents need to be the one trusted place for kids to go when things go wrong online or offline.
      Do not overreact, but take it seriously
      Contact the school
      Ask yourself: Is my child at risk of physical harm? How are they doing emotionally?
      Contact local law enforcement agency
      Monitor your child regularly
    • Tips for Teachers
      Have a clear understanding of what cyberbullying is and isn’t
      Talk to your students- education is the key
      Know your school policies and review them so that you understand them
      Set and discuss boundaries with students
      Recognize the signs and get help if needed
      Teach children how to “Take 5” and think before they post
      Encourage students to report cyberbullying
    • Tips for Students
      Tell a trusted adult if you are being cyberbullied
      Do not open, read, or respond to messages from cyberbullies
      If it is school related, tell your school
      Do not erase messages. They could be used later to take action against the cyberbully
      If bullied through chat or IM, the bully can often be blocked
      If you are threatened with harm, call the police
