Does Technology Make Bullying Easier?

Bullying is a topic that emerges frequently in the news as the beginning of the school year approaches. What steps are you taking to protect your children?


According to a recent poll, six in ten adults believe bullying is more prevalent in
school than when they attended. 


Not surprisingly, Millennials are much more likely to have experienced cyberbullying than any generation. So, what is cyberbullying and how can we as parents and grandparents help our children prevent it?


According to the United States Department of Health & Human Services, the first thing you can do is talk with your children about these issues regularly. Awareness of what your kids are doing online is key. 

Know the websites your kids visit. Ask where they’re going, what they’re doing, and who they’re doing it with.

Installing parental control filtering software or monitoring programs might be a good idea, but there’s nothing like having a parent present when children are online.

Know and use the apps your children are using.

Know your child’s passwords.

Encourage your children to tell you immediately if they, or someone they know, is being
bullied (online or in real life).

What steps are you taking to protect your children? We’d love to hear your tips on our social media sites (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter).
