Understanding Bullying

Parents are naturally concerned that their children will be targeted by bullies.  They wonder if their kids will tell them if there is a problem.  They want to strike a balance between being overly protective or overly involved and allowing their children to solve their own social problems.

Safety On the Internet

Children tend to be way ahead of parents on the Internet. For the most part, they are more comfortable with computer technologies, schools are going on-line rapidly and the world is shrinking in totally new ways. Safety in this environment is an evolving issue, one that has attracted widespread media attention. The reality, however, of this technology is that it holds vastly more information, opportunity and richness of experience, than danger.
