What can I do?
If you believe that your child is suffering from some kind of cyber incident, there are a number of things that you can do:
Remove your child from the source of the upsetting behaviour (eg: Block the individual who is harassing);
Screenshot the offensive online behaviour for evidence;
Do NOT retaliate or even reply online;
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and advise us in detail what is happening. Be sure to include screenshots.
