Ways that We Can Help

Parents can help by learning the warning signs, so that they can recognize when their children are hiding abuse from them and try to help them.

The websites themselves can help by creating more visible and accessible ways to report any harmful messages or comments, as well as block any online presences who are sending them such messages and comments.

Friends can help by watching out for their friends, speaking with their friends, and informing schools counselors when they witness or hear of any harmful activity on the internet. As well as hitting the "report button" themselves.
