I wanted to share different online resources for those looking for more information and assistance with what they can do to help understand, stop, and prevent bullying. All links open in a new tab.
That's Not Cool
National PTA - Bullying prevention (including Parent tip sheet)
Cyberbullying Toolkit for Educators
Cyberbullying and Substance Abuse
Protecting your childs identity (esp when traveling)
In regards to internet use, social media, and cyberbullying, if your child is active on the net, and you aren't. Get with it! Get on the computer and take the time to learn about social media sites and see what your kids are doing. Not just what they are doing, but what they are SHARING. Take the initiative to understand how they communicate today. Times have changed so drastically that we need to get more involved instead of turning a blind eye to the youth of today.
Besides, having a facebook, instagram, twitter, and vine, just might bring you and your kids closer.
