The problem of cyberbullying is as urgent as never before. Kids and teens get bullied online and often feel ashamed or scared to tell someone. Cybebullying can be as hurtful as actual bullying and can lead to depression, anxiety, or even suicide.

When you’re young, small problems can seem huge and kids may see the fact that someone doesn’t like them as the end of the world. Talking to your kids about cyberbullying is a must, but it is not always enough. Modern kids believe their own sources, often the digital ones. So, apart from talking these issues through, you can also install some apps on their phones that will teach children the value of tolerance, how to diminish fear, and build confidence. Here are some good apps for that.

Fostering tolerance and understanding in kids is an important task of every parent. You should not only make sure that your kid is not bullied, but also raise them not to be bullies themselves. Kids can be mean and it is your task to protect your children from all the possible harassment. Teach them to be kind and to respect people around them.
