  • Bullying/Cyberbullying at School is sadly something that has become fairly common. With all of the peer pressure and constant negative feelings in kids. As a parent, the challenges include identifying when your child has been bullied and determining the best response. Help your child understand not to bully back by explaining the situations that may happen if a child becomes a bully himself and encourage your child to avoid and ignore the bully. 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.
