  • CyberBullying is something most children encounter in one form or another, and this is a serious problem and one which parents need be aware. As a parent, you should be able to recognize if your child is being bullied online or if she is bullying someone else. 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:
