Bullying is not ok. In any shape or form. This free seminar will educate you about beating the ‘unseen’ cyber bully and keeping up with your kids online

Ever feel like the kids know more about computers than you do?! We are living in a digital world and our little ones are little digital natives (while we are dinosaurs trying to keep up or face extinction!). Their world is online and is going to remain so for the foreseeable future, love it or hate it, this is the lay of the land now. Unfortunately in this ‘new’ world there is a serious virus, one that requires education and awareness to eradicate. That virus is Cyberbullying.

Here comes a bit of scary stuff….Recent statistics show that 81% of young people agree that bullying online is easier to get away with than bullying in person and 80% think it is easier to hide online bullying from parents. On top of that, 93% of recruiters now check out applicants social media channels during an employment or university application process. Involvement in cyberbullying, at any age, becomes a permanent part of someone’s online reputation. See, told you – scary.

So what can we do to protect the kiddos? to make sure that they’re prepared for that great big digital world out there? Well first thing’s first, we need to increase our own levels of education and awareness and we need to make sure that they feel comfortable coming to talk to us about anything (as much as the thought of that makes US uncomfortable!). Unfortunately parents are usually avoided by children when things go wrong. WHY? Well adults tend to overreact (guilty as charged) and the littles fear that they’ll just make it all worse. Plus they definitely don’t want to have their devices and internet access taken away!

Want to be fully prepped for the future mamas? Then head to the free ‘Beat The Cyberbully – Keeping Up With Your Kids Online’ session being run by Barry Lee Cummings, Chief Awareness Officer of Beat The Cyberbully here in the UAE and get motivated, educated and a step further from extinction!
