    Thanks for writing this article. Bullying is a serious subject that parents need to better understand.

    When we were kids, the bullying stopped when we left the playground. Today’s kids have to deal with bullying 24/7 because they are connected 24/7. The average kid today sends or receives almost 4,000 text messages per month, and they are online 1 in every 4 waking hours. 80% of kids say that they sleep with their mobile phones so that they won’t miss any important messages.

    Here is a collection of excellent articles on the subject of cyberbulling that might be helpful for your readers… http://www.uknowkids.com/blog/category/cyberbullying/

    I highly recommend that parents consider using a parental intelligence tool such as uKnowKids (http://www.uknowkids.com).

    Parental intelligence tools are designed to help parents keep their kids safe from bad guys and bullies online and on the mobile phone by enabling parents to stay actively engaged in their kids’ digital world. uKnowKids has a free version of its service, and so parents can try out the parental intelligence tools for free.

    Full disclosure… I am the CEO of uKnow.com… the company that powers uKnowKids.

    I hope this is helpful to your readers. Stay safe everyone!
