As parents, you may see your childs complaints as minor. The things they complain to you about may be an obvious joke to you, but through a screen it can be hurtful to them. It's more than just a comment or a funny joke. You don't know how these words through a screen can affect your kid. It's easy to say something hurtful over the internet as consequences are never put in place. Cyberbullying is a growing issue for children at a young age as technology is quickly growing. Stick up for them. Be there for them. Take them seriously. Cyberbullying is NEVER just a joke.
