Bullying

Bullying can be a difficult topic to talk about, but one that is very important for parents, kids, and young adults to learn how to deal with. There are many websites out there that can help families deal with bullying, whether it's at school, or on the web. Tips for young adults and kids can be found on Stomp Out Bullying and Cyberbully. Kids can find games and animated short stories on Stop Bullying Now, to help them with these issues. Organizations like Netsmartz also offer information for adults, children and educators on internet safety.
