  • Bullying or Cyberbullying is common and happens in all schools. Young people are often ashamed, embarrassed, and may believe they deserve it. Many children are frightened of telling because they fear the bullies will find out and hurt them even more. So, We parent in order to help our children we should talk with our child and work out ways of solving the problems and reassure them that they were right to tell you.As a parent or caregiver, you can use stories to help your child learn how to respond to bullies in healthy ways.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/1026trz
