Communicate with Your Child
Keep the lines of communication open with your child. Talk to him about his friends, school, and hobbies. Having an open dialogue will make your child more likely to come to you if he is being cyberbullied or harassed online. Talk to him about some of the mistakes you made or obstacles you faced and how you got through it. Give some perspective on what it was like to grown up without the exposing and immediate nature of the Internet today.
