What should I do if my child is being bullied online?

​There are several things that you can do. First, I would look at your school policies. Schools now have policies on cyber bullying. So if they're being bullied by someone at their school, contact your school counselor, see how the school can interact.

Two, you can absolutely maybe take a timeout. If your kid is being bullied and it's happening pretty frequently, maybe we take a time out for a short time.

Educate your kid. A lot of times kids will have to deal with kids being rude to them or have to deal with somebody being disrespectful to them. This is a great opportunity to teach them social skills. So have a conversation ​with them, praise them for coming to you, and then teach them how to respond to bullies.​
