Anon78993-The best way to prevent cyber bullying is to talk to your kids about bullying when they are young so that they see this as problematic as drug use.
If the child understands the effects of bullying you can develop a child that will not engage in internet cyber bullying, and they will also recognize when cyber bullying children are engaging in this behavior.
Have a cyber bullying safety orientation with your children as well as monitor the sites that they go to also helps prevent cyber bullying.
It is important to make it a habit to talk to your children daily about their day this way you will get to understand the social dynamic of your child’s classroom and who the potential cyber bullying children are.
It is best to take a preemptive strike and watch movies that depict cyber bullying behavior so that it can open dialogue for you and your child to discuss any issues at school and provide cyber bullying tips.
They need to understand that cyber bullying is a crime and if a child engages in cyber bullying against your own child then you need to make sure that you have a good enough relationship that your child will tell you about the situation.
Always insist that they tell you so that you can take action and protect your children. I always tell me children that a bullying child is “Broken” meaning that there is something seriously missing with the child for the child to resort to this behavior.
