What can parents do to protect their kids from cyberbullying? Below mentioned are few ways by which you can ensure complete protection to your kid.

Select Stringent Security Settings

It is quite possible that your child is not aware of the security settings. Everything that they post online is made public to everyone. You should make them understand that they must share photos and comments with only those whom they have selected as friends and trust. Most of the time people start bullying when they are unknown. You should visit the page of the settings of your account or your child’s account and teach them how to secure their account from unwanted people. When kids understand the security measures and follow them properly, then such risks get reduced to a huge extent. At least they must know all the security measures.

Restrict the Friend List Only to Whom They Know Personally

Kids must have friends in the social media sites with only those whom they know personally in reality. Besides that, if they had experienced bullying from a particular person who may be related to their school or community, they should avoid becoming friends with them online. They are the first ones who starts bullying. Additionally, for privacy and security purposes, you must ensure that they do not publically share any personal information about themselves. They should always avoid sharing a year of birth and the state of their residence.

Limit the Time on Web

When your kid spends more time online on social networking sites, they are more prone to bullying. You can try to limit the usage of the internet so that they are less available on the social media. You should encourage them to use private messaging instead of posting messages publicly. If your kid was once a friend with someone who is now bullying them, it is perfectly right to defriend them from their friend list. Along with that, they must know the ways to remove defamatory remarks from the page. Limiting the usage time reduces the vulnerability of bullying.
