Safeguard kids against cyber-bullying

Posted by: Mitch Zeltzer

Whether for homework or chatting with friends, kids spend a lot of time online.  Chatting and messaging friends can be fun, but it can quickly turn ugly when kids encounter cyber-bullies.

One Possible Solution: Encourage real interaction with outdoor play!

Many kids today spend endless hours glued to the television or their computers. Why not encourage them to power off their electronics and go play outside. Whether it is the summer or winter kids can play outside, they only need to dressed appropriately. They can play many games that can include little to no equipment. (visit our website,, and sign up for our monthly newsletter for a new game idea every month!!)

Naturally this won't eradicate the problem, as online interaction has become part of daily routines in today's world. (Not to belabour the point but you are more than likely reading this online yourself!) So assuming we all accept that as a reality of today's world, we need to implement some structure to keep our children safe when online.

  1. After 23 years in juvenile court, I believe that teenagers often learn from the experiences of their peers, not just from being lectured by those in authority. Consequently, “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” was published in January, 2010.

    Endorsed by Dr. Phil ["Bullied to Death"],
    “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” presents real cases of teens in trouble over their online and cell phone activities. Civil & criminal sanctions have been imposed on teens over their emails, blogs, text messages, Facebook and YouTube entries and more. TCI is interactive and promotes education & awareness so that our youth will begin to “Think B4 U Click.”

    Thanks for looking at “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” on [publisher] or on [a free website for & about teens and the law].
