ANTI BULLYING CAMPAIGNS
CyberBullying is more prevalent than parents think. And research from the top anti-bullying organizations suggest that children do not report it more than 40 per cent of the time, because they feel that things would only get worse. That's pretty sad. But if they were to confide in an adult, they would not feel comfortable speaking to school authorities. While each situation or child is different, we've compiled a list of anti-cyberbullying resources for you.
