Wherever there are kids and devices and an internet connection, the risk of harm from cyberbullying poses a clear and present danger to our children’s wellbeing.
But the good news is there’s so much we can do to keep them safe - to minimise the fallout from online cruelty, encourage compassion and responsibility, and put appropriate boundaries around their online activity.
One in five children has been the victim of cyberbullying, and three-quarters of Australian schools reported at least one incident of cyberbullying in the past year. No wonder surveys have found cyberbullying to be one of the leading concerns of parents.

“You guys deserve medals! We have got our son back from a downward spiral. My son is actually doing his homework now. We can’t thank you enough, this is what technology should be used for - to benefit the entire family. A truly amazing transformation. You have my complete admiration.”
