Great news was announced today for California residents and Facebook users concerned about cyberbullying. California passed Assembly Bill 746 (http://bit.ly/pY0oCi) which makes cyberbullying a offense worthy of school suspension.
Facebook and Time Warner have also announced they will prevent bullying with a joint initiative called Stop Bullying: Speak up.
ContentWatch understands the dangers of cyberbullying, which is why we have made an effort to help families have a safe and enjoyable online experience. Net Nanny's conversation monitoring feature helps parents protect their children from bullies and helps to ensure that kids are not bullying others.
In addition to the bill and other initiatives there are many simple ways parents can contribute to the Internet safety of their children. A list of precautions, including good practice suggestions and electronic aids is available for parents at http://bit.ly/m3CX1x.
It is also good for parents and school officials to know how kids can get around online precautions put in place for their safety. Have you seen your kids use any of the following work-arounds? Share with us your own story related to cyberbullying.
