mobile appsMost of the apps our kids use on their phone are an extension of the child’s “real world” social life.

Our kids talk to people they only talk to in “real life.” We can’t panic or over think every single news article, but we do need to be aware of what our kids are doing in these apps.

We teach our children how to swim so they don’t drown and the same is true with online apps.  We need to talk to our kids and teach them how to exist in this online environment.

The circumstances around the death of 12-year-old Gabriella Green on Jan. 10 led to the arrests of the two Surfside Middle School students, Panama City Beach officials said in a news release Monday.

Two 12-year-olds in Florida were arrested for cyberbullying in connection with the death of a middle-school student who police say hanged herself two weeks ago.

Police did not release the names of the two children who were arrested because they are minors.

Melania Trump is hosting executives from major online and social media companies to discuss cyberbullying and Internet safety, more than a year after saying that would be her issue as first lady.

The meeting Tuesday marks her first public event on the topic, a choice some observers have questioned given that her husband often berates people on Twitter.

Amazon, Snap, Facebook, Google and Twitter are among the companies that are expected to attend the meeting. The Internet Association said it will also be represented.

Lucy Alexander knew something terrible had happened the moment she got a call from her son’s school saying that he had not turned up for his lessons.

“I felt in my gut something awful had happened.”

Her son Felix, 17, had been subjected to abuse on social media from the age of about 13, and had clearly been troubled by it. Mrs Alexander said: “He had been getting negative comments from people he knew, and people he didn’t know.

“He was called ‘black rat’ and ‘ugly’, people said he was worthless and everybody hated him. They didn’t understand or think through the consequences of what they said.”
