Tips for parents and cyberbully prevention:

Keep your home computer(s) in easily viewable places, such as a family room or kitchen.
Talk regularly with your child about online activities that he or she is involved in.
Talk specifically about cyberbullying and encourage your child to tell you immediately if he or she is the victim of cyberbullying, cyberstalking, or other illegal or troublesome online behavior.
Encourage your child to tell you if he or she is aware of others who may be the victims of such behavior.
Explain that cyberbullying is harmful and unacceptable behavior. Outline your expectations for responsible online behavior and make it clear that there will be consequences for inappropriate behavior.
Consider installing parental control filtering software and/or tracking programs, but don’t rely solely on these tools.
