Ideally, cyberbullying situations developing should always be prevented it from occurring in the first place. This means raising awareness in children and adults about the risks and enabling children to freely speak out to get help and protection.- It is important to create open dialogic spaces with your child, always showing her/him openness non-judgmental regard by listening to them and showing understanding towards everything they share. – Pay attention to small behavioural changes and be careful if this happens suddenly: it might be evident if something disturbs her/him and it could be that they might be subject to cyberbullying.
– try and engage with your child in their online world and while it is difficult to restrict children’s usage of the internet, try to do so and keep your child under as much supervision as possible when they go online.
Always advise your child never to share any personal details with someone they do not know. And tell them that they should never do or say anything online that they would not do face to face.
– Maintain a constant vigil and discuss any concerns with your school teachers. They are a good source of help and assistance for your child.
