  • Bullying has always been a tremendous concern for me, So parents are a child's first line of defense against bullies. To help prevent or combat bullying it is important to arm your child with the appropriate defense tactics. Encourage your child to build a friendship with another child and teach them to be respectful of others.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.
