  • Talking with your child about bullying can be one of the most important conversations you’ve ever had with him or her. It is important to understand that bullying has been going on for a long time but over recent years, it has increased to the extent that there are organizations that have been formed just for the purpose of putting an end to the bullying that many children and teens are experiencing on a regular basis. In an effort to keep our children safe and give them the best education possible it’s important to be aware of bullying and the harm that it can do. 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.

Which is 3/4 kids are bullied by either physical, verbal, social, or cyberbullying. ~ revenge against bullying is the leading cause of school shootings. ~ the newest area of bulling has to do with the gay, lesbian, and transgender community, especially for kids in schools. Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover was an 11 year old 6 th grader that has recently committed suicide because students teased, calling him gay. Despite protest from his mother to the school, nothing was done. ~ recent pop culture example: mean girls.
