The Online Bullying Tips Every Parent Should Know

Internet Safety Expert and former Police Officer Brett Lee has seen cyber bullying in all of its forms. 

But it comes down to a few simple steps and tools that we already have in our arsenal to prevent it happening to your own children - or to stop the situation before it escalates. 

There are a few tips Brett can't stress enough: 

- NEVER go online to try to fix the problem

- The physical and mental health of your child is most important - so if confiscating their phones or access to technology is required, then do so until the problem can be solved

- Bullys want your child to keep it to themselves - make sure they have a trusted adult who they can talk to without judgement

Find out all of Brett Lee's tips below.
