My daughter just entered Middle School and has her own phone. As parents, we have set guidelines about usage, social media apps she can download, etc. However, no matter how much I think we’re protecting her, I still know that cyber-bullying can happen. Can you give me any tips on how to talk with her about this issue? Should there be a problem, what are the best ways we can help her work through it, being mindful of not punishing her in the process (e.g. taking away her phone, etc.)?
& Cell Phones
I’m a grade school teacher with a lively but well-behaved classroom. Unfortunately, during free time on the playground a few students don’t know when their play becomes too rough or too dominating. This situation not only intimidates the others, it also results in others’ not wanting to play with them. I’ve asked to meet with the parents, but they say it’s my problem and don’t want to come in. What can I do to help them get involved? I don’t want their children to get in trouble or be left out.
