As researchers Elizabeth Englander and Sheri Bauman pointed out at the conference, most of the research on cyberbullying focuses on adolescents, but there is a growing concern about the behavior of younger children.
Experts in technology, child safety, medicine, mental health and theology gathered in Rome at the Child Dignity in the Digital World Congress to talk about how to keep kids safe online and protect children from sexual exploitation.
Cyberbullying and online harassment can be an issue for anyone. But it’s especially pernicious for young people who identify or are coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning (LGBTQ).
Let’s face it, most parents worry about their children and look for reassurances that everything is OK. And while you can’t know exactly what's going on with your kids 24/7, there are ways that you can track their location, know when they’ve arrived home and even look in on them when they are at home.
