  • It's good to know that a lot of students are now aware and are truly against bullying. Yet, not everyone is strong enough to fight against these bullies. I am a parent and I'm worried that any kid can just be a victim. 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.
