  • Bullies, come in all shapes and sizes and can be hard to identify. But one thing's for sure, we've all come in contact with a bully at some point or another. As a parent, it's your responsibility to teach your child how to properly, respond. Create an environment that helps your child build friendships. 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.
