As a parent, how can I prepare my children to deal with cyber bullying?


Education is the most effective tool to help your children deal with cyber bullying.
• Understanding the motives can stop bullying.  Start by teaching them to recognize the four profiles of cyber bullies and their motives.
• Ask your child about incidences of bullying in their school to see what
they know.
• Listen and be alert to signs your child is being bullied.  Respond immediately by talking with your child’s school guidance counselor or a teacher.  It’s also important to confront the bully.
• Support partnerships between parents, teachers and school administrators to teach prevention with awareness-raising campaigns.
