  • Bullying is a serious problem and the major issue in many schools. I hope that this article serves as a message to everyone especially to the parents that we must take action in making sure that are kids don't get bullied or worse become bullies themselves.As a way of helping everyone especially the parents, who find it quite hard to manage time, I found this great Safety Service 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:
