8 Effective Ways to Bully-Proof Your Child

Monitor Internet and Phone Use


The anonymity of the Internet makes cyberbullying a modern day threat. To help keep your child from being bullied online, keep all computers in a common area of your house and monitor his Internet use. Tell your child not to accept any texts, instant messages or friend requests from people he doesn't know. If he does receive a harassing message or email, teach him not to reply or play into it, and to tell you right away.

Online services often have a "block" or "ban" option to keep certain people from contacting you. Talk to your phone and Internet provider for additional privacy settings.
