How to Stop Your Child From Becoming a Cyberbully

We’ve talked about how to deal with a child that’s being bullied, but how do parents know when it’s their child that is the bully? Ross Ellis, the CEO of Love Our Children USA, an organization dedicated to ending violence against children, shares some advice on MomLogic.

1. Talk to your kids

Have consistent casual conversations with your kids, and bring up how common cyberbullying is in the news. Could your child imagine how being cyberbullied would make him/her feel?

2. Remember age limits for websites

Facebook, for example, says you should be at least over 13 years old. Parents know best for their kids, but any younger than 13 can be dangerous for your child.

3. Teach your kids about privacy

Remind your children to never post anything on the web that they wouldn’t want everybody to know.

4. Offer guidance

Your child needs to understand that teasing and name-calling, or even worse, spreading rumors about people is completely unacceptable, whether it’s online or off.

    My kids know all about this. They wouldn't be a cyberbully, I'm sure. But I remind them to always guard themselves against something who may bully them online. They are allowed to join websites that are kid-friendly only. I always keep a watch on what they're doing on the computer too.

    I've only begun to have to deal with monitoring my daughter's computer habits, but I've already started talking to her about internet safety. It's a good reminder to tell her to never say anything that she wouldn't want publicly talked about…

    My kid are still too young to use the computer on their own, but once they are old enough I will talk to them about safety on the internet. I also will monitor them on the internetto make sure they are not bullying or being bullying.

    I think with all the dangers in the internet you have to monitor your child's activities and talk to them. I know every parent will say my child would never bully anyone but I think it begins with teaching your child from the earliest age about morals and how to treat others.

    You need to monitor what all your child does on the computer . Also, I think that if a child were going to be a cyber bully, he'd be a bully in real life too. That's why it's so important to watch your child and talk with other parents and the teachers, to make sure things are ok.

    I think that is not just important to monitor their computer use, but you should also monitor them with their friends. See how they truly treat them and see how their friends treat your child. You can really see the true child when they are not aware that you are watching and listening. If they pass the test of responding nicely and compassionately to bad things and bad people then they will not be a cyberbully. Also the example of us parents train our children how to respond to people.

    Volunteer at the school A LOT, especially with your child's teacher. If the teacher is comfortable with you, they will be more likely to warn you about problems they see with your child. If your child is a cyberbully, chances are that something is off in real life as well, and the teacher will know.

    I have taken note that of all kinds of insurance, health insurance is the most dubious because of the issue between the insurance plan company’s obligation to remain making money and the buyer’s need to have insurance cover. Insurance companies’ commission rates on health and fitness plans have become low, therefore some corporations struggle to profit. Thanks for the concepts you write about through this website.

    Thanks for your suggestions. One thing I have noticed is always that banks and financial institutions know the dimensions and spending routines of consumers plus understand that many people max out and about their real credit cards around the vacations. They wisely take advantage of this particular fact and begin flooding your own inbox in addition to snail-mail box with hundreds of no interest APR credit card offers immediately after the holiday season comes to an end. Knowing that if you are like 98% in the American open public, you’ll get at the possible opportunity to consolidate financial debt and transfer balances to 0 annual percentage rates credit cards.
