  • As a parent it is quite difficult and challenging to teach your child to be the 'better person' when your first instinct is to protect your child from harm physical, verbal and otherwise. As a mom I've encouraged my child to be the better person, stay away, ignore, tell them to stop and pretty much all the advice out there on how to handle bullies without retaliating but to no avail. 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.
