What to do to Stop Cyberbullying

Teaching children the consequences of their action and to step in when someone gets bullied. As a parent you can try to make sure you don't overreact or you will be the last person the child will want to tell. Be supportive of your child and get the guidance counselor to look for any type of bullying at school. Try to step in and not be just another bystander.
