  • Bullying should not be responded to with violence or aggression, but the situation should not be ignored either. Encourage the children who are being bullied to develop good friendships. Bullies have a more difficult time when confronting a group of people. Children should also be taught to seek an adult when confronted by a bully. 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.
