Published on

  • It can be so heartbreaking for parents to see their children being treated badly in a place where they are supposed to feel safe. We recommend that you continue to report any incidents of bullying to the school. I am a parent and I'm worried and I don't want anyone to experience threatening cases like this especially my kids. 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 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.
