From the parents' side, we must bear in mind that prevention and information are two key elements to avoid cyberbullying and that for this:

- Bet on safe browsers and search engines on the devices your child uses.
- Install the computer or Internet access always in common areas of the house (dining room, living room, and et.) prevent, especially in the early years, your child access only the Internet.
- Check the social network privacy settings and instant messaging APP.
- Talk to your child about the risks of the network and convince him that, whether it happens to him or a friend, cyberbullying is a crime.
- Know the language and uses of social networks by minors, only then can you detect if a problem is occurring.
- Activate parental control tools.
- Be interested in social media activity and your child's contacts on the Internet. Avoid accepting profiles without identification.
- Set strict schedules for both the use of social networks and mobile devices.

In case your child tells you that he is suffering from cyberbullying follow these tips:

Listen to him: If your child tells you that he is suffering from cyber bullying, he has taken a very important step and, first of all, you should listen calmly and without making value judgments or looking for causes and consequences. Do not judge him.

Take quick measures and always from the calm: If he has resorted to you it is because he needs help and, therefore, you must act and look for the ways and solutions as an adult.

Contrast the information provided by your child with both other parents and the school: It is not because your child is going to lie to you, but because in a cyberbullying situation you have to collect as many tests as possible and that these are true.

Do not act against cyberbullying by responding with the same currency through fake profiles or direct attacks on social networks or messaging services. The example you give your child marks his way of dealing with the problem.

How to report cyberbullying in Social Networks

Apart from prevention and information tools, you should know that most social networks have enabled mechanisms to stop cyberbullying and denounce cyberbullers who, in most cases, use anonymous profiles to intimidate or disseminate false information about his victims.
