Tips on Tuesday

A slight deviation for us today, in that we’re going to talk about online bullying and abuse.  Whilst this does fit under our remit for education, it isn’t a usual topic for our Tips on Tuesday segment but it is certainly a topic worth visiting.

We wrote a lengthy post on keeping children safe on social media here and we feel the message must be that if you see instances of cyber bullying report it. 

Immediate steps – and this is our tip – you can take are: –

  1. Don’t respond or engage
