rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, November 23, 2013 11:41 PM

This is important, Parents have the important duty of helping their children tackle cyber-bullying. This is not only an important duty, but also a responsibility! Parents who are too caught up with work should somehow find time for their children; this is something which cannot out source to others. While schools are no doubt doing their level best, it is at home that children can have a quiet time with parents and have a face to face talk. Unfortunately hectic schedules and work pressure have made this special time with children mere dream.
