  • Bullying issues have come to a great rise nowadays and as parents, we are the first ones to take responsibility in helping our kids avoid becoming a potential bully or worse a victim of a bully. I am a parent and I'm worried and I don't want that any kid will experience this again. 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.
